St. Jerome

St. Jerome

Jerome was born to Catholic parents who taught him about Jesus As a boy he loved to learn about his faith When he was old enough his father sent him to a pagan school where Jerome lost his love for Jesus He loved school and everything he was learning but something was missing He started to hang out with friends who were faithful Christians and he again found his love and faith in Jesus He was so afraid that he would fall back into his old ways that he moved away from his family and friends and lived alone in the desert He spend all his time praying with God and doing penance He was known for having a bad temper but worked hard at controlling himself He continued to learn and wrote many books He also loved to pray and study the Bible He was the first to translate the Bible from Hebrew to Latin so many people could learn about Jesus He died when he was 73

St Jerome, you loved to learn about Jesus. Please pray for us so that we would always want to learn more about Jesus and grow closer to Him.

Jesus Christ
