In tribute: the greatest of them all...


In an era of liturgical prevarication, the Father saw fit to raise up this genius. Such opportuneness on the part of our Lord: meet Gregory, the greatest living cerimoniere on the European continent. A chorus of gratitude to his sweet mother who bore him!

Is he a cleric? What does make him so "great" as MC?

JPSonnen said...

Not ordained, but a layman. He's great because he knows everything liturgical better than anybody on the continent...

Martin Bürger said...

Thanks for the information, John!

The most famous MC I've ever heard of was Abbé Frank Quoëx, but he died as a young priest - of cancer, I believe.

Brother, yep, Padre Frank was the Jedi Master who was his mentor and teacher.

May you keep clicking those fingers for many years to come, Gregory.

and all of us of the SS. Trinità community are so grateful for his invaluable contribution to the splendor of our Liturgies!

Fr A said...

OK, JP: now that you've piqued our interest, how about providing his contact information? I've got questions on ceremonial no one else has been able to answer...

He is really the greatest!! I have learned everything (acolyte, subdeacon, deacon, priest) with him.
When you have Greg as a MC the Liturgy is fine and beautiful!
God bless him!!

Fr. A.

I reckon a letter care of SS. Trinita dei Pelligrini might find him.
Domus Sancti Petri
Via Leccosa 54, int. 3

Good Luck
