Almighty and eternal God, you show perpetual loving kindness to us your servants. Because we cannot
rely on our own abilities, grant us your merciful judgment, and train us to embody the generosity of
your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. ...

O Lord God, merciful judge, you are the inexhaustible fountain of forgiveness. Replace our hearts of
stone with hearts that love and adore you, that we may delight in doing your will, through Jesus Christ,
our Savior and Lord. ...
O God, we thank you for your Son, who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world. Humble
us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow your commands,
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. ...
On September 3, the Church remembers His servant Gregory the Great.
"One of the great leaders in Europe at the close of the sixth century, Gregory served in both the secular and sacred arenas of his era. As mayor of Rome, he restored economic vitality to his native city, which had been weakened by enemy invasions, pillage, and plague. After he sold his extensive properties and donated the proceeds to help the poor, he entered into full-time service in the Church. On September 3, 590, Gregory was elected to lead the Church in Rome. As bishop of Rome, he oversaw changes and growth in the areas of church music and liturgical development, missionary outreach to Northern Europe, and the establishment of a Church Year calendar still used by many church bodies in the Western world today. His book on pastoral care became a standard until the twentieth century."
Almighty and merciful God, You raised up Gregory of Rome to be a pastor to those who shepherd God's flock and inspired him to send missionaries to preach the Gospel to the English people. Preserve in Your church the catholic and apostolic faith that Your people may continue to be fruitful in every good work and receive the crown of glory that never fades away; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
