St. Jerome

Today is the feast of St. Jerome, the patron saint of biblical studies and therefore my man in the heavenly court.  Since devotion to St. Jerome seems to have flagged since the middle ages, I found an old Latin hymn for his feast day and translated it, and my friend Dr. Peter Kwasniewski gave it a fresh hymn setting.  If you need to ramp up your celebration today, you can grab that hymn here; a midi file to help you get the melody is here.

One of my children is named for St. Jerome, so we’ll be singing the Nameday Song at our house!
