Prayer to St. Gregory the Great

O invincible defender of Holy Church’s freedom, Saint Gregory, you showed firmness when maintaining the Church’s rights against all her enemies while you lived, we ask you now to stretch out your mighty arm from your place in heaven to comfort and defend her in the fearful battle she forever wages against the powers of darkness. We ask you especially to watch over our Holy Father that he may have the fearlessness of your mighty heart; obtain for him the joy of seeing the triumph of the Church and the return of the lost sheep into the right path. Amen.

The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist
