Managing Monday with Thomas Aquinas – Take 2

Posted by on Mar 26, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is regarded as one of the most significant shapers of Christian theology. He followed the tradition of scholasticism, and was a champion of reason and natural theology. His “necessary first cause” argument for the existence of God is still widely used – albeit a source of much debate.  The Catholic Church continues to view him as a model teacher for those studying for the priesthood. While this selection from his insights cannot possibly do justice to his work, they can perhaps act as a tiny taster – and this is of course take 2.

  • Nothing so likens you to God, as to forgive him who has injured you. Thomas Aquinas
  • The things that we love tell us what we are. Thomas Aquinas
  • Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen Thomas Aquinas
  • Fear is such a powerful emotion for humans that when we allow it to take us over, it drives compassion right out of our hearts. Thomas Aquinas

As always, nice chatting…
