Happy Feast of St Jerome

This from the Catholic Biblical Association –

Wishing you a blessed feast day of Saint Jerome, our patron saint.  Saint Jerome is a Doctor of the Church and the Patron Saint of Scholars and in particular of the Catholic Biblical Association. He was born in 331 AD in what is now known as Croatia and eventually lived the last 30 years of his life in a cave in Bethlehem, dying in 420.  Arguably, his most famous line is “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ” which occurred in his commentary on Isaiah.  His learning was a way of purification for him. He is most famous for his translation of the Scriptures in Latin (the Vulgate).

May the Lord richly bless all our endeavors and keep us faithful. May our work help in the building up of His kingdom.

Joe Atkinson

Amen and amen.  I love Jerome.  Happy Jerome day to one and all.
