the Greatest of the Least

"Perhaps it is not after all so difficult for a man to part with his possessions,
but it is certainly most difficult for him to part with himself.
To renounce what one has is a minor thing;
but to renounce what one is, that is asking a lot"
St. Gregory the Great

I can only surmise that by living out these words, Gregory did in fact become "the Great"

"For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
and he who humbles himself will be exalted
