What are Gregorian Masses?
Gregorian masses are a series of 30 consecutive masses offered for the soul of our deceased. The custom of this series of masses dates from St. Gregory the Great, the Pope from 590-604. This pope popularized the practice after retelling, in his Dialogues, the story of Justus, a monk who died at St. Andrew’s convent in Rome, for whom St. Gregory offered masses for thirty consecutive days. After the thirtieth mass, Justus appeared to his fellow (living) monks to announce that he had been delivered from Purgatory. Following these events, the Church has always had a great appreciation to this precious spiritual practice.
