"St. Jerome was a straight shooter when it came to speaking the truth, not afraid of what anyone thought about him. Most often his words drew the ire of his fellow priests.
"This can be seen clearly in a letter to the priest Nepotian,
who abandoned the military for the clerical calling. St. Jerome wrote
extensively about the duties of a priest and had harsh words for those
who sought fame and fortune."
In a recent commentary, writer Philip Kosloski
reflected on Saint Jerome's advice to priests.
