Saint for the Day - September 3rd.

St. Gregory the Great.(540-604)

Born in Rome of patrician parents he became the prefect (mayor) of the city.  He soon resigned the office, turned his ancestral home into a monastery and became a monk there.  Next he was sent to Constantinople as papal nuncio.  On his return in 590 he was chosen as Pope, and what he achieved in his fourteen years as pope makes him one of the most commanding figures in world history. First in importance was his mission to England, where he sent St. Augustine and forty monks  and the spread of the Benedictine rule among the new races of Western Europe.  He was a prolific writer, developing the liturgy, caring for the poor in Rome, at Ravenna and on his estates in Sicily. 

Quote for Today.

‘And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.’

 

(Revelation 21 : 4)

If there are other young (or not so young!) people who would like to join the altar servers’ group, they would be very welcome.  Please speak to Father Anthony or one of the senior servers.”
