St. Jerome, the Great Name-Caller

Wednesday September 29th 2010, 11:34 pm

Today’s the memorial of St. Jerome. I’m sure you’ve already made plans to read my post from a few years back, when I dubbed Jerome “Doctor Cantankerous.” And surely when you’re there, you’ll follow the links.

But since Jerome is so awesome, you’ll probably want to do something more.

And I have just the thing.

Dion DiMucci, “the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame’s resident expert on patristics,” wrote an awesome song about St. Jerome, called The Thunderer. Don’t let the feast day end before you’ve spent your ninety-nine cents to buy “The Thunderer” on Amazon. If you’re really cool, you’ll buy the whole album. I’ll bet Jerome would — though he’d probably get one of those rich Roman ladies to pick up the tab.
