St Thomas Aquinas

Yesterday was the feast day of dear Sancte Thomas Aquinas! :) He's a wonderful saint as well as a beautiful philosopher. Here's more on him, what I wrote on my blog last year, a small search on my blog on all I typed about St. Thomas Aquinas, and a beautiful prayer with attached indulgences I found in the Raccolta written by St. Thomas Aquinas himself.

I found this on one of my friend's profile on Facebook, quotes from his favourite saint too. :)

Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder.

-Saint Thomas Aquinas, Commentary, I Metaphysics, lect. 3

It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.

-Saint Thomas Aquinas

Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.

-Saint Thomas Aquinas

The things that we love tell us what we are.

-Saint Thomas Aquinas

The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false.

-Saint Thomas Aquinas

I like the last one a whole lot. :)


Deo gratias et Mariae.

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee; Save Souls!

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Thank you so much for your wonderful post on St Thomas Aquinas, especially the quotes, which I really love.

I came across your blog while searching for the latin lyrics for "Mary from thy sacred image". It truly is a beautiful blog!
People who stay true to Holy Mother Church are really few and far between these days.

Oremus pro invicem! :)
