The Feast of Saint Damasus I, Pope

Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Damasus I, a Pope. He is known for his preservation of the papal archives. Devoted to the relics and resting places of the martyrs, he was the one who convinced Saint Jerome to produce the new translation of the Latin Bible, later to form the main part of the Vulgate. Today in Father Jerry’s homily, he shares with us that as Catholics, “We seek to avoid what is painful, stressful and traumatic, but it’s in failure that we learn. It is in suffering that we find healing. It’s in our crosses that we discover the wholeness and joy of the resurrection.” Thank you for watching today’s video!
