      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      He's a USA Calvinist guy. Presbyterian I think. He's popular among Presbyterians. Something of a teacher.

      It's the same title as the Supreme Pagan priest in pagan Rome, MC. No matter how desperately you want your supreme leader to be Christ's spokesman on earth, he still holds the title of head pagan priest.

      They should call pastors overseeers. Even church is a heathen word. It should be ecclesia.

      The facts differ from your stated claims. It had nothing to do with Constantine and is not an official title but it is of Roman origin and was a title used by emperors and other high officials signifying their religious leadership. Need any more be written?

      Other than the Bishop of Rome actively chose the title for himself?
      Can you say..."Power grab"?!
