SAINTS OF THE MONTH

StJerome2SAINT JEROME: Born: 345 Died: 420 Canonization Date: Unknown Patron Of: Librarians

When we think of saints, we think of how holy the must be. However, Jerome was known for his bad temper! He would easily give someone a tongue lashing or use his pen to write them a strong letter, but many times he would also be swift to seek forgiveness for being too harsh.

Jerome is best known for translating the Hebrew Scriptures from Greek into Latin and his handwritten copy of the Bible, known as the Vulgate, became the official text used by the church.
