Saint Days: Saint Thomas Aquinas
St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) was a Catholic priest and is commonly referred to as the Angelic Doctor because of his influence on the intellectual life of the Church.
One of his simplest, yet most beautiful quotes is, "The things that we love tell us what we are."
Let us pray with St. Thomas Aquinas in mind:
Almighty God, you gave to your servant St. Thomas Aquinas special gifts of grace to understand and teach the truth as it is in Christ Jesus: Grant that by this teaching we may know you, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
