ST. GREGORY THE GREAT, POPE

St. Gregory the Great is one of the greatest Popes in Ecclesiastical history.  Every topic in Theology has been taken up on the writings of Gregory.  

Gregory wrote and ruled in the midst of severe wars and dislocations, droughts, famine and plagues of gigantic scale, heresies by the Arians and schism in Gaul and northern Italy.  Gregory lost his good friend, Queen Theodelinda to the schismatics.  

Gregory's MORALS is his explanation of evangelical spirituality, that is, the mission of the Catholic Church suffering in a hostile world.
