Quotes of the Day – 30 September – The Memorial of Saint Jerome (347-419), Priest, Father and Doctor of the Church
St Jerome – Speaking of Holy Scripture
“The Scriptures are shallow enough,
for a babe to come and drink,
without fear of drowning
and deep enough,
for theologians to swim in,
without ever reaching the bottom.”
“Make knowledge of the Scripture your love …
Live with them,
meditate on them,
make them the sole object
of your knowledge
“A false interpretation of Scripture,
causes, that the Gospel of the Lord,
becomes the gospel of man,
or, which is worse,
of the devil!”
“It is worse still
to be ignorant
of your ignorance.”
St Jerome (347-419)
Great Western Father and Doctor of the Church
