Saints Alive! | St Thomas Aquinas

Thomas Aquinas, a Dominican friar, encountered the thought of Aristotle as a student in Naples. His great Summa Theologiae brought together Aristotle’s thought and the classical Christian formulations of the Fathers of the Church. Aquinas’ writings display the profound harmony between faith and reason, and have formed students of theology for centuries. Of him Pope John Paul II wrote, “He could defend the radical newness introduced by Revelation without ever demeaning the venture proper to reason.” In 1567, he was declared the “Angelic Doctor.” For more about this saint, Angelic Doctor of the Church, please click on the image. Peace be with you!
