S. Jerome
Friday, September 30, 2016
St. Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church
More detailsJerome was born about 347 A.D. in Stridon. He received Baptism in about 366 and opted for the ascetic life. Meditation, solitude and contact with the Word of God helped his Christian sensibility to mature. He centered his life on the Bible: he translated it into Latin, commented on it in his works, and above all, strove to live it in practice throughout his long earthly life, despite the well-known difficult, hot-tempered character with which nature had endowed him. He died in his cell close to the Grotto of the Nativity on 30 September 419-420.

To Whom Much is Given; Much will be expected!    

Lectio

Jesus said to them, “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. And as for you, Capernaum, ‘Will you be exalted to heaven? You will go down to the netherworld.’ Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me.  And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.” (Lk 10: 13-16)

Contemplatio: 

Jesus I have heard your Word, I have experienced your miracles, may my life reflect such.
