      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.

      Hey I've been there a few times!! I went camping with my husband and a friend of ours. It was like 95 in Minneapolis and dropped to 40 in Duluth that night and I wasn't prepared. SO COLD. That's how it is in Minnesota!

      I talked with him in his shop. He was a free spirited person who simply envisioned a piece in his mind and then built it. Minnesota has a number of eclectic parks. You can find the nations smallest park in St Paul. It's a memorial obelisk standing about 8 feet tall on an island near Dodd Avenue and Smith Avenue.

      I think we might be thinking of 2 different parks? This one is a huge sculpture park in Shafer, MN. http://www.franconia.org/

      I really like St. Paul and the architecture there. I've been there a couple times and prefer it over Minneapolis.

      You are right. I was thinking of another park. However, I have been to the sculpture park on Hwy 8 as well.
      Here's the park I was thinking of.

      I wish I had known about that one! It's closer to where our friend lives. We don't have any sculpture parks near me that I can find.
