Pope St Leo the Great

Yesterday, at the morning Mass, I preached to the children about Pope St Leo the Great. A fascinating character. There is little I want to say, here, about Pope Leo but I do encourage you to find out more about him. You can do this, here, on wiki (it's just so universal even if 'banned' at Oscott), or you may prefer to read a great little book called The 33 Doctors of the Church by Tan Publishing (which I got for an absolute bargain in Dublin) or, indeed, you may prefer to delve into Butler's or the like. To help the children understand the man, I talked about three aspects of his life which would lead history to call him 'Great'; an honour bestowed upon only one other Pope. What, I wonder, did I say...
