Jerome on the Catholic Epistles


The apostles James, Peter, John, and Jude, have published seven epistles at once spiritual and to the point, short and long, short that is in words but length in substance so that there are few indeed who do not find themselves in the dark when they read them.-Epistula 53.9[1]
