Jerome: A Humble, Flawed Saint: Family Reflection Video

Holy lives of inspiration

If you are someone with flaws, there is a saint you can turn and relate to.

Born around 340, Saint Jerome was a well-learned man who felt he knew everything. One day he had a vision of a judge standing before him, who he told “I am a Christian.” The judge said “You lie.” Taken aback by this, Jerome went to learn Hebrew so he could understand the Word of God in its original context and culture.

He devoted his studies and time to then make the Vulgate, a translated version of the Bible that more people of his time could read. His work reached so many; expanding the Christian family. We are all members of this family, imperfect, but striving for a better world, where we can all be unified as one family in Christ.

How have you connected with your family today?

Saint Jerome, pray for us!
