St Jerome, who died in Bethlehem in 419 or 420, is known as the most prolific Bible translator and the most learned of all the Latin Fathers of the Church. He lived for much of his life as a hermit in a cave hewn from the rock. While praying there, a lion came in limping from a thorn in its paw. Jerome, unafraid, extracted the thorn and dressed the wound. Thereafter the lion, tamed, was his lifelong friend, resting at his side.

May St Jerome pray for us, that our love for God’s Word may ever deepen within us, and bring us the healing of all our wounds of the heart and spirit. May God bless you this day.
