Gregory: Christ, our forerunner
Feast of Gregory the Great, Bishop of Rome, Teacher, 604
For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.
—1 Peter 2:21 (ESV)
All that which our blessed Saviour wrought in his mortal body, he did it for our example and instruction, to the end that, following his steps, according to our poor ability, we might without offense pass over this present life.
