Jerome: a bulwark

March 5, 2009

    But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
    -- Galatians 3:22 (NIV)

    A man who is well-grounded in the testimonies of the Scripture is the bulwark of the Church.
    ... St. Jerome (340?-420), Commentary on Isaiah, 54:12 in loc. [Corpus Christianorum, Series Latina 73A, 612]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill my mind with Your word.
