"And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us," Heb 12:1
Jerome of Dalmatia
November 8 (Julian Calendar)
Saint Jerome (Latin: Evsebivs Sophronivs Hieronymsvs; c. 347-30 September 420) was a priest, confessor, theologian and historian, who also became a Doctor of the Church. He was the son of Eusebius, of the city of Stridon, on the border of Dalmatia (modern Croatia). He is best known for his translation of the Bible into Latin and his commentaries on the Gospel of the Hebrews. His list of writings is extensive. He is patron of scholars, students and librarians.
