Otros nombres: Sv. Gregor I., San Gregorio Magno
Gregorio Magno , Gregorio I o también San Gregorio, fue el sexagésimo cuarto papa de la Iglesia católica. Es uno de los cuatro Padres de la Iglesia latina, junto con Jerónimo de Estridón, Agustín de Hipona y Ambrosio de Milán.[Nota 1] Fue proclamado Doctor de la Iglesia, el 20 de septiembre de 1295, por Bonifacio VIII. También fue el primer monje que alcanzó la dignidad pontificia, y probablemente la figura definitoria de la posición medieval del papado como poder separado del Imperio romano. Hombre profundamente místico, la Iglesia romana adquirió gracias a él un gran prestigio en todo Occidente, y después de él los papas quisieron en general titularse como él lo hizo: «siervo de los siervos de Dios» [Nota 2].

„Holy Scripture presents a kind of mirror to the eyes of the mind, so that our inner face may be seen in it.“
Morals in the Book of Job, 553d, as translated in Cultural Performances in Medieval France (2007), p. 129
Original: (la) Scriptura sacra mentis oculis quasi quoddam speculum opponitur, ut interna nostra facies in ipsa videatur. Ibi etenim foeda, ibi pulehra nostra cognoscimus.
Contexto: Holy Scripture presents a kind of mirror to the eyes of the mind, so that our inner face may be seen in it. There we learn our own ugliness, there our own beauty.
„In vain do they think themselves innocent who appropriate to their own use alone those goods which God gave in common; by not giving to others that which they themselves receive, they become homicides and murderers, inasmuch as in keeping for themselves those things which would alleviate the sufferings of the poor, we may say that every day they cause the death of as many persons as they might have fed and did not. When, therefore, we offer the means of living to the indigent, we do not give them anything of ours, but that which of right belongs to them. It is less a work of mercy which we perform than the payment of a debt.“
quoted in George D. Herron, Between Caesar and Jesus (1899), pp. 111-112.
Clearly, fear and dread were prescribed for the animals, but evidently it was forbidden among humans. By nature a human is superior to a brute animal, but not other humans.

„Those who do not speak the words of God with humility must be advised that when they apply medicine to the sick, they must first inspect the poison of their own infection, or else by attempting to heal others, they kill themselves.“

„And let the fear and dread of you be upon all of the animals of the earth.” Clearly, fear and dread were prescribed for the animals, but evidently it was forbidden among humans. By nature a human is superior to a brute animal, but not other humans.“

„There are some so restless that when they are free from labour they labour all the more, because the more leisure they they have for thought, the worse interior turmoil they have to bear.“
As quoted in Summa Theologica Part II of Second Part Q. 182, Art 4
„Moreover, because the slothful mind is typically brought to its downfall gradually, when we fail to control our speech, we move on to more harsh words. Thus, at first, we are happy to speak of others kindly; afterwards, we begin to pick at the lives of those of whom we speak, and finally our tongues break into open slander against them.“

„No one does more harm in the Church than he who has the title or rank of holiness and acts perversely.“
