St. Gregory the Great is widely recognized as one of the most significant popes in history. Even before becoming pope, Gregory had extensive experience as a high-level administrator in both civil and ecclesial positions. Drawing upon his vast experience, Gregory wrote his Pastoral Rule to guide Church leaders in serving persons entrusted to their care. While the Pastoral Rule was intended
