Saint Gregory is known as St. Gregory the Great. He is known for being the first monk to become the Pope. His rein is distinguished by writings, encouragement of monasteries and many miracles. He is credited with creating the Gregorian Chant and for converting the Anglo-Saxon peoples to Christianity. The Saint Gregory statue by Jeweled Cross shows the saint holding the Orthodox cross, representing his efforts to unity Western and Eastern churches. The handcrafted statue is made of fine pewter and is sized perfectly for purses, pockets or desks.
