Sep. 30 (ST. Jerome)

“Love the holy Scriptures, and wisdom will love you. Love wisdom, and she will keep you safe. Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” St Jerome. Jerome was known for his bad temper as well as his scholarly knowledge of languages. St. Augustine once wrote that if Jerome was ignorant of something then no mortal knows it. He had running feuds with various people including, for a time, St. Augustine himself. But, Jerome is most remembered for his translation of the Bible into Latin know as the “Vulgate” which, for a time, was the authorized translation of the Roman Catholic Church. Learn love of Scripture from him.
