St Jerome – Saint of the Day – 30th September


Having retired for a while to Syria to live as a hermit, St Jerome learnt Hebrew at the hands of a rabbi. He was later commissioned by Pope Damascus to revise the Latin version of the Bible. He went to Bethlehem to concentrate on this work, together with the writing of Scriptural commentaries and theological works.
