Another key theme of his pontificate appears to be the role of Scripture and the Fathers of the Church. This comes together today on the feast of St Jerome, Doctor and Father of the Church, most well known for his translation of the Bible into Latin, known as the Vulgate. The revised version of the Vulgate (available from the Diocesan Bookshop) is still the standard Latin text of the Church. He is also back in Rome for the start of the next Synod of Bishops from 5-26 October on 'The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church' which was his choice of subject and reflects his concern for the proper place of Scripture in the life of the Church.
