Thomas Aquinas, Priest, Friar, and Theologian, 1274

"Faith is a foretaste of the knowledge will make us blessed in the life to come." (Thomas Aquinas, as quoted in the Catechism of the Catholic Church)

The Collect

Almighty God, you have enriched your Church with the singular learning and holiness of your servant Thomas Aquinas: Enlighten us more and more, we pray, by the disciplined thinking and teaching of Christian scholars, and deepen our devotion by the example of saintly lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(More information on Thomas Aquinas, “The Angelic Doctor,” is available from For All the Saints.)
