St. Jerome Holy Card

Honor one of the four great Latin Doctors of the Church, St. Jerome, a monk and priest who lived during the 4th and 5th centuries when the Roman Empire was being overrun by hordes of barbarians.   Our St. Jerome card features a painting of him by the Venician artist Bellini and a short prayer plus some information about St. Jerome.  St. Jerome is the patron saint of librarians, translators, and scholars.

St. Jerome was commission by Pope Damasus to write a new and better translation of God's Sacred Word - the Holy Bible.  He is the father of the Latin Vulgate Bible which was the official bible of the Catholic Church from the 5th century to 1979.  He was a prolific writer of commentaries on the Bible, letters to the faithful, and a book, De Viris Illustribus, on Illustrious Men, about 135 ancient writers from St. Peter up through his century.

Pope Benedict XV's encyclical, Spiritus Paraclitus stated, "His voice is now still, though at one time the whole Catholic world listened to it when it echoed from the desert; yet Jerome still speaks in his writing, which 'shine like lamps throughout the world'. Jerome still calls to us."

Printed on white cardstock.
