“St. Jerome lays down that we have got to keep to the ''true interpretation, and that the real function of a commentator is to set forth not what he himself would like his author to mean, but what he really does mean.'”
--Pope Benedict XV, Spiritus Paraclitus (Encyclical Letter On the Fifteenth Centenary of the Death of St. Jerome)(1920), no. 55 citing St. Jerome, Epist. ad Pammachium, 49, 17, 7.
