Pope St. Gregory the Great

(The Illumination above shows S. Gregory the Great sending S. Augustine of Canterbury to England to preach the Gospel.)

Collect for the Feast of S. Gregory the Great:

ALMIGHTY and merciful God, who didst raise up in Gregory a servant of the servants of God, by whose labour the English people were brought into the knowledge of the Catholic and Apostolic faith: Preserve in thy Church evermore a thankful remembrance of his zeal and devotion; that thy people, being fruitful in every good work, may receive with him and thy servants everywhere the crown of glory that fadeth not away; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
