The Family of St. Jerome's Miami Chapter wishes you peace in the Lord.
The Family of Saint Jerome is a canonical association dedicated to the advancement of the Latin heritage of the Catholic Church, as it is reflected in the Church’s liturgy, in its sacred music, in its devotional life, in its official documents, and in its propagation of the Faith.
This heritage is of the greatest value, as Pope John XXIII affirmed in his Apostolic Constitution, Veterum Sapientia. It is a continual sign of the Church’s establishment by God on the rock of Peter in Rome. It has helped to give the Church a splendid ability to attract, unite, and sanctify the faithful of every nation and culture of the world.
It is essential for the preservation of this heritage that the Latin language itself, which is the bearer of that heritage, be USED. Pope Paul VI stated that those who are willing to devote themselves to learning, using and advancing Latin as a living language, do a great service to the Church.
The members of the Family of Saint Jerome must also promise loyalty to the Holy Father, and must commit themselves to strive for holiness by following the example of the Saints.
