Today is the Feast day of St. Gregory the Great.
That means it is Gregory’s Feast day. I knew it was his Feast day coming up a few days ago, but didn’t know what to do, or whether we should do anything at all.
At school, the Saint of the day at the kids’ school was St. Gregory of course. So, I knew I would come home to everyone knowing whose feast day it was. So, on my way home, I stopped at bought a cake and had them put “Happy Feast Day, Gregory!” on it. (I had to explain what a feast day was, and then had to endure a little smirk from the bakery lady and the comment, “never heard of anything like that before” but…she did a lovely job and I brought the cake home.)

Sunday was 6 months since Gregory was born into heaven. While it’s a little easier to think about Gregory these days, there’s still a bit of longing and sadness.
But today, we celebrate our little guy in heaven.
Happy Feast Day, my dear sweet boy.
Saint Gregory, Pray for us.
