Book of Saints – Gregory of Utrecht


(Saint) Bishop (August 25) (8th century) A Frank of Royal Blood, born at Treves, at the beginning of the eighth century, the faithful disciple and companion of Saint Boniface, both in his missionary travels in Germany and in one of his journeys to Rome. From the time of the martyrdom of Saint Boniface (A.D. 754) Saint Gregory governed the Church of Utrecht, and, though it seems he never received Episcopal Consecration, he is always styled Bishop of that city. Paralysed during the last years of Ms life, he continued to the end to teach and encourage his numerous disciples. He died A.D. 781.
