Today is the Feast of St. Jerome, the Church’s greatest Doctor of the Scriptures. Here are some photos of his cave in Bethlehem.

St. Jerome was a favorite of other Doctors of the Church, including St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Robert Bellarmine. One of his most popular quotes is: “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” It is said that he is buried somewhere in the walls of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.
