ST. JEROME – Patron of Libraries/Translators
Born a pagan, living a wild youth, Jerome was a lawyer before converting his faith. Feeling a need for isolation after becoming a monk, he lived as a hermit in the deserts of Syria. His biggest accomplishment was the revision of the Bible into Latin. He was a Doctor & Father of the Church and was known for his teachings on Christian Moral Life.
