Today’s guest is Chase Faucheux, translator of a recent biography of Pope St. Gregory the Great. Topics include:

  • The very low point in Rome’s history in which Gregory came of age
  • His being all things to all men in the city of Rome, as both a spiritual and temporal leader
  • His longing for the monastic life even after he became Pope
  • His remarkable forthrightness about his own shortcomings
  • His diplomatic attempts to keep barbarians from destroying his city
