17th June. St Gregory Barbarigo, Bishop and Confessor

St Gregory Barbarigo, Bishop and Confessor

Gregory Barbarigo (1625-1697) was an Italian cardinal, diplomat, and scholar. He was a strong supporter of the work of the Council of Trent. He was beatified by Pope Clement XIII in 1761, and canonized Pope John XXIII in 1960.

Statuit ei Dominus testamentum pacis, et principem fecit eum: ut sit illi sacerdotii dignitas in aeternum. * Memento, Domine, David, et omnis mansuetudinis ejus.
The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, and made him a prince: that the dignity of the priesthood should be to him for ever. * O Lord, remember David: and all his meekness.
(Ecclesiasticus 45:30 and Psalm 131:1 from the Introit of Mass)

Deus, qui beatum Gregorium, Confessorem tuum atque Pontificem, pastorali sollicitudine et pauperum miseratione clarescere voluisti: concede propitius; ut, cuius merita celebramus, caritatis imitemur exempla.
O God, who did will that Blessed Gregory, Thy confessor and bishop, should be renowned for his pastoral care and his mercy for the poor; grant, we beseech Thee, that we who celebrate his merits may also imitate the example of his charity.
