Prayer of St. Gregory the Great

Feast Day Sept. 3

As we approach the beginning of a new school year, we turn to St. Gregory the Great, patron saint of teachers and students.

When we are linked

by the power of prayer,

we, as it were,

hold each other’s hand

as we walk side by side

along a slippery path;

and thus

by the bounteous disposition

of charity,

it comes about that

the harder each one leans

on the other,

the more firmly we are riveted

together in brotherly love.

– St. Gregory the Great
