Lk 9:46-50 An argument arose among the disciples about which of them was the greatest. Jesus realized the intention of their hearts and took a child and placed it by His side and said to them, “Whoever receives this child in My name receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives the ONE who sent Me. For the one who is least among all of you is the one who is the greatest.”
We must fight against the influence of the world. We MUST NOT honor a rich person because he is rich, we MUST NOT honor a powerful person because he is powerful, and we MUST NOT honor a talented person because he is talented. We must ONLY HONOR GOD.
"For the one who is least among all of you is the one who is the greatest.” We MUST follow HIS example and RECEIVE all people with the dignity and respect due to a CHILD OF GOD. We are all HIS creatures, and therefore we are all equal. We are each gifted and called differently, not because of anything we deserve, but only to Do the Will of GOD. "For we are His handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them." Eph2:10
St. Jerome, pray for us.
The Vulgate is an early 5th century version of the Bible in Latin which is largely the result of the labors of Jerome, who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I in 382 to revise the older Latin translations. The Vulgate's Old Testament is the first Latin version translated directly from the Hebrew Tanakh rather than from the Greek Septuagint. It became the definitive and officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible of the Roman Catholic Church.
