Feast of St. JeromeSeptember 30th, 2014
Jesus is taking the road to Jerusalem but the people of a Samaritan village refuse him hospitality because he is on his way to Jerusalem. James and John, loyal followers of Jesus are furious with the villagers and think nothing of using their miraculous power to call down fire from heaven to burn these people up. They are rebuked and Jesus changes his route.
Today is the Feast of St. Jerome, 347 – 420, who translated the Bible into Latin, known as the Vulgate. He also wrote commentaries on Scripture. He is Patron of librarians.
