1600th anniversary of the death of Saint Jerome

Today, 30th September 2020, is the 1600th anniversary of the death of Saint Jerome, the great biblical scholar and translator of the Bible. Pope Francis has written a letter to mark the occasion. It would be well worth spending a half hour reading the letter, because it tells the exciting story of St Jerome, and the Pope reflects on the importance of Scripture in our lives.

The letter can be read by clicking here.
