This 3 1/2" tall pewter figurine is remarkably detailed! From the features on the saint's face, and the folds of the garments to the accessories that tradition commonly associates with this saint. Last but not least the saint's name is inscribed on the base of this sturdy little statue.

About St. Gregory . . . St. Gregory, born at Rome about the year 540, was the son of Gordianus, a wealthy senator, who later renounced the world and became one of the seven deacons of Rome. After he had acquired the usual thorough education, Emperor Justin the Younger appointed him, in 574, Chief Magistrate of Rome, though he was only 34 years old. After the death of his father, he built six monasteries in Sicily and founded a seventh in his own house in Rome, which became the Benedictine Monastery of St. Andrew. Here, he himself assumed the monastic habit in 575, at the age of 35. After the death of Pelagius, St. Gregory was chosen Pope on September 3, 590, by the unanimous consent of priests and people. He then began his work which earned him the title of Great. His zeal extended over the entire known world, he was in contact with all the Churches of Christendom and, in spite of his bodily sufferings, and innumerable labors, he found time to compose a great number of works. He is known above all for his magnificent contributions to the Liturgy of the Mass and Office. He is one of the four great Doctors of the Latin Church. He died March 12, 604.
