SAINT JEROME SPIRITUALITY SOMASCAN FATHERS

“OUR PRAYER”

“Our dear Father, Lord Jesus Christ, because of your infinite goodness we ask you to restore the Christian people to the sanctity of life of the time of the Apostles. Hear us, O Lord, because you are kind and merciful. In your compassion, look upon us. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us (repeat 3 times). May the power of God the Father, the wisdom of His Son, and the strength of the Holy Spirit and the glorious Virgin Mary guide and protect me on the journey toward peace, love, and prosperity. Also, may the Angel Raphael, who assisted Tobias, be always with me everywhere I am and go. My dear Jesus, my dear Jesus, my dear Jesus, my love and my God, I trust in you so that I never be disappointed.

Great faith and hope

A component emerges clearly from the simple reading of Miani’s letters and from “Our Prayer.” The spirituality of the Saint is characterized in a vital way by the trust in the Lord. The study carried out on the Biblical sources confirms this datum and allows us to have a glimpse of its singular depth and extraordinary potentiality (10). The character of trust as essential component of Jerome’s spirituality appears, with particular force, in a statement that we find in the paragraph 6 of his second Letter. We quote the text so that we can highlight its chiastic structure that distinguishes it and witnesses not only Miani’s depth of thought, but also its inner cohesion: A “God does not perform his things B in those who have not put all their faith and hope in Him alone: B’ and those in whom there is great faith and hope, A’ He has filled with love and made great things in them.”

Great faith and hope

Man as “servant of the

Lord”

 

Steadfast in Tribulations

The spirituality of St. Jerome manifests his depth and greatness in the theological- existential interpretation of “tribulations,” of the moments when man walks in the enigmatic darkness of difficulty and his existence finds itself in a vital space that more and more closes in till it does not allow a glance at a possible way out and liberation. The adjectives “redoubled, afflicted, tiresome, and, lastly, despised by all” (2Lett 3) in a suggestive and effective way recall this dramatic situation which had invested the “Company of the Servants of the Poor,” to the point of threatening its survival
The Somascan Fathers continue the legacy of St. Jerome's commitment in serving the poor and taking care of the orphans and abandoned youth
