Pope Gregory, a friend of Israel,
With love and kindness, you did prevail.
To protect and guide those of the Holy Land,
You lent a helping and righteous hand.
In troubled times, you showed the way,
With words of peace, you brought the day.
Defended truth with clarity,
And preached the Gospel fearlessly.
Friend of Israel, a noble cause,
For justice and truth, you did not pause.
With kindness and compassion in your heart,
You led the faithful on a righteous path.
May your legacy always shine,
As a beacon of hope, a light divine.
For Pope Gregory, friend of Israel,
Your deeds and love will always tell.
He honored Israel’s rich heritage,
And showed respect and gave them relief,
He sought to build a bond of trust,
And heal the wounds of history.
We thank you, Lord, for Pope Gregory,
And for his friendship with Israel,
May his legacy inspire us all,
To seek the truth and live in love.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord on high,
For Pope Gregory, who heard Israel’s cry.
His heart was full of faith and love,
Guided by God’s wisdom from above.
(Sr. Maria Miller)
