Saint-Thomas-AquinasSpirit of Wisdom, Saint Thomas Aquinas’ family misunderstood his devotion to studying the Faith.  Because of their disapproval, he had to join the Dominicans secretly.  His family kidnapped him, intent on changing his mind, but his trust in You kept his hope alive.  A year later, You freed him to rejoin the friars.  Help me to persevere in my desire to learn, study, and understand theology and the wisdom of the Faith.  Share with me the same gift You gave to Saint Thomas for grasping the teachings of the Bible and Sacred Tradition.  Make sure that nothing and no one holds me back.  Saint Thomas Aquinas, pray for me.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Thomas Aquinas

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. >>

To bear with patience wrongs done to oneself is a mark of perfection, but to bear with patience wrongs done to someone else is a mark of imperfection and even of actual sin. >>

The celebration of the Mass is as valuable as the death of Jesus on the cross. >>

The greatest kindness one can render to any man consists in leading him from error to truth. >>
