Lent Madness: Vote for Jerome!

Today’s matchup pits Jerome against John Patteson. Though I respect Patteson’s story (which I had not previously heard) and the witness of his life, I cannot help but feel this is a terribly unequal matchup.

St. Jerome, Doctor of the Church, authored the Vulgate translation of the Bible into Latin, which was foundational to the subsequent development of theology in the Western church for a thousand years.

He’s the patron saint of Biblical scholars, translators, and students.

Vote for Jerome!
