Feast of St. Jerome

How can you not love a saint who was named Eusebius Hieronymous Sophronius?!  Every day at Mass I get to look at St. Jerome and his lion as he is on a huge mural right above the high altar.

Be sure to read about his life, it is incredible!  But to whet your appetite for information here are some quotes!

The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.

A friend is long sought, hardly found, and with difficulty kept.

They talk like angels but they live like men.  (OUCH!!)

The friendship that can cease has never been real.

Be ever engaged, so that whenever the devil calls he may find you occupied.
