January 28: Thomas Aquinas

Thomas Aquinas was a thirteenth century Italian nobleman who defied his family and become a Dominican priest. He is best known for his in depth theological writings, particularly Summa Theologica. 

In today’s world, it seems to me that feelings often supersede logic. I believe we would do well to practice thoughtfulness on the feast day of one of the church’s great thinkers.

 

“A simple man believes anything, 
   but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.”

Proverbs 14:15
