Memorial of St. Gregory the Great is September 3rd.
Please notify me via FReepmail if you would like to be added to or taken off the Saint of the Day Ping List.
Troparion in the 3rd Tone:
“Thou didst excellently dispense the Word of God,/ endowed with discretion of speech, O Hierarch Gregory:/ for by thy life thou didst set the virtues before us,/ and dost radiate the brightness of holiness ./ O righteous Father, pray to Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.”
Kontakion in the 8th Tone:
“We praise thee, God-inspired harp of the Church and God-possessed tongue of wisdom;/ for thou didst prove to be an image and model of the Apostles and didst emulate their zeal./ Wherefore we cry to thee: Rejoice, O Gregory the Dialogist.”
In Orthodoxy we celebrate his feast on March 12. He was, by the way, the author of my favorite Orthodox devotion, the Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts which we celebrate throughout Great lent on Wednesday evenings.
