On the Feast of St. Jerome in the Roman Rite.

“The divine speech that communicates the truths of the Catholic faith is expressed in human languages. The inspired Hebrew and Greek text of the Holy Scriptures is itself uttered by God in all of its parts. It is not a purely human report or interpretation of divine revelation, and no part of its meaning is due solely to human causes. In believing the teaching of the Holy Scriptures we are believing God directly.” (From the Correctio Filialis de Haeresibus Propagatis, 16 July 2017)
