The celebration of the memory of St. Jerome in Bethlehem

“Ignoring the Bible means ignoring Christ himself, because He is the way, the truth and the life”: this is the famous phrase of St. Jerome, “the translator of the Bible”, author of its Latin version, the “Vulgate”. On September 30, the Custody of the Holy Land celebrated the Saint’s memory with a solemn mass in the cave of St. Jerome in Bethlehem – near the Grotto of the Nativity. This is the place where he dedicated himself for about 40 years to the translation of biblical texts from the languages in which they were originally written to Latin.
