Saint Gregory was born about the year 540 into a wealthy Roman family. After brief but distinguished service as Chief Magistrate of Rome, Gregory resigned to become a Benedictine monk and used his great wealth to establish several monasteries. In 578 he was ordained deacon and sent to Constantinople as papal ambassador. In 586 Gregory was recalled to Rome and became abbot. Four years later he was elected pope. Feeding starving Romans, protection of Jewish rights and his political diplomacy helped him earn the title ‘Great.’ He is known as the Apostle of England for sending missionaries there. Gregory, who died in 604, is a Doctor of the Church.
