St Jerome (Born: c.347 AD, Died: 420 AD) is renowned and praised for his many Commentaries on Scriptures and for his masterpiece, the translation of the Latin Vulgate.

Legends about St Jerome include the account that he once pulled a thorn from a lion’s paw whilst he was living in the wilderness. In gratitude the lion is said to have faithfully guarded and assisted him.

We have created a group study resource for adults (based on the article by Fr. Jerome Ituah, OCD) and several activity sheets for children to share St Jerome’s love of Scripture further.
