And so, in the name of the divine Mercy, I have the confidence to embark upon the work of a wise man, even though this may surpass my powers, and I have set myself the task of making known, as far as my limited powers will allow, the truth that the Catholic faith professes, and of setting aside the errors that are opposed to it. To use the words of Hillary: ‘I am aware that I owe this to God as the chief duty of my life, that my every word and sense may speak of Him’ [De Trinitate I, 37].
Summa Contra Gentiles 1,2
Saint Thomas Aquinas is one of the greatest saints ever produced during the 2000 year history of the Church. He contributed more to the development of western Christian philosophy and theology than anyone before or since. I may be a little biased towards him, since I have a very Dominican spirituality, and love Thomistic theology.
Have a listen as we discuss this great saint.
