Who are you?

The Christian tradition is packed with great riches of reflection and examples we can still learn from. One text, of great influence in the past but less well-known now, is the Pastoral Rule of Pope Gregory the Great. Gregory, who initiated a renewed mission to England in the late 6th century, was concerned to raise the standard of parish clergy and to offer practical advice. This wonderful book is full of insight on the character and behaviour of those called to public ministry, as well as providing the most detailed advice from the early years of the Church on how to give spiritual guidance to all kinds of people.
