A Prayer for the Feast Day of Saint Jerome

Posted by Kendall Harmon

O Lord, thou God of truth, whose Word is a lantern to our feet and a light upon our path: We give thee thanks for thy servant Jerome, and those who, following in his steps, have labored to render the Holy Scriptures in the language of the people; and we beseech thee that thy Holy Spirit may overshadow us as we read the written Word, and that Christ, the living Word, may transform us according to thy righteous will; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

1. Capt. Father Warren wrote:

I always look forward to St. Jerome’s day.  The last sentence in LFF always makes me laugh;

“Jerome was seldom pleasant, but at least he was never dull.”

How would I like someone to write that about me for all to read for generations to come?
