St. Eustochium

Author and Publisher - Catholic Online

Facts

Feastday: September 28
Death: 419

The third daughter of St. Paula. She was born circa 370 and stayed with her mother, taking her veil in 382 from St. Jerome, who wrote Concerning the Keeping of virginity for her in 384. Eustochium and her mother went with St. Jerome to Bethlehem, Israel, and there she aided the sainted scholar in his translation of the Bible. St. Jerome founded three convents in Bethlehem and Eustochium became abbess of all three in 404. A band of marauders destroyed the convent, and Eustochium never recovered from that experience. She died in Bethlehem.
