Complement your discussions and meditations on today's Sunday Reading with 5 quotes from the fathers of the Church. Today, at Mass, St. Mark the Evangelist tracks the imprisoning of John the Baptist, and Christ's proclamation of the Kingdom of God. The apostles join Christ as fishers of men in the gospel. Today we quote insights from Theophylact, St. Jerome, St. John Chrysostom, St. Remigius and St. Bede. Legwork complementary of St. Thomas Aquinas.
St. Jerome born in Dalmatia in 329, was sent to school in Rome. His boyhood was not free from faults; his thirst for knowledge was excessive, and his love of books, a passion. He had studied under the best masters, visited foreign cities, and devoted himself to the pursuit of learning. But Christ had need of his strong will and active intellect for the service of His Church. #Catholic #saintoftheday #prayforus #pray #StJerome #DoctoroftheChurch
