    Can you imagine having the knowledge and experience of Saint Jerome? He is like the Michael Jordan of languages and Bible translation and reformation. How I would pray for one iota of his experience and knowlege. God bless Saint Jerome for always holding true to his beliefs and please, Saint Jerome, pray for me that I too can become worthy of our precious Lord.

    I am a deacon at my parish and I am scheduled to deliver the homily on the feast day of St. Jerome. I wanted a resource that would have some meat and bones on it for my own purposes. Your account of his life was just what I was looking for. Thank you for providing a rich resource. I am more than a little impressed.
    God bless.

    I luv this site, I use the saints calendar for my religion lesson plans, however since Im dealing with the primary grades, it would be useful to have a condensed version of the saint in language a child can comprehend. Maybe you could look into that...
    I luv the cartoon though of St Jerome.

    Refreshing! Thank God i finally found this in-depth study. I finally begin to understand some earlier happenings in my life and why the grace of my lord,Jesus Christ has abound with me and still does even at this present hour.It is indeed a grace to share a name with one who laboured tirelessly for the growth of the church and spread of the gospel in most compelling circumstances.I thank His Lordship,Bishop Okoye,The Bishop Of Enugu catholic diocese,who in june 1971, baptised me,St.Jerome. May the souls of St.Jerome,Bishop Okoye, and all those who have laboured for the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ,find eternal joy in the bosom of Our Lord,Amen!
