CONCEPT OF SERVICE & AUTHORITY IN THE LIFE OF ST. GREGORY THE GREAT
September 3 @ 5:30 pm
Gregory’s view of service and authority are rooted in his understanding of the Incarnation as an act of humility; and that the authority stems from humility, not power. He grounded his entire notion of pastoral care on this concept go authority as service, not servitude of those obeying. He is considered by many church historians as the greatest of all pontiffs in the history of the Roman Church.
