O Lord, thou God of truth, whose Word is a lantern to our feet and a light upon our path: We give thee thanks for thy servant Jerome, and those who, following in his steps, have labored to render the Holy Scriptures in the language of the people; and we beseech thee that thy Holy Spirit may overshadow us as we read the written Word, and that Christ, the living Word, may transform us according to thy righteous will; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Today is the feast of St Jerome, one of the four Latin Doctors and a figure commonly found on late medieval East Anglian screens. Usually depicted wearing a cardinal's hat, here he is at Potter Heigham and Tunstead, both Norfolk. pic.twitter.com/hJzCsh5xUu
