A Man of Scripture: St. Jerome

with Fr. Matthew Niggemeyer

Can you imagine reading a book and your life changing drastically?  For St. Jerome, from Ciceronian to a Christian, from Rome bureaucracy to desert asceticism, St. Athanasius’ book on St. Anthony did just that.  What did not change for St. Jerome, however, was his gift for languages, a gift we still benefit from today. Discover with Catholic Bytes just why we have to thank this 4th century language master.
