 Our Description

This title is no longer available from Aquinas and More. On page 41 there is a quote from St. Thomas Aquinas regarding the Immaculate Conception. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception was defined long after St. Thomas Aquinas wrote on the topic and the saint's opinion was rejected by the Church. To include such a quote in a devotional book without any mention that official Catholic teaching is different leaves us with no choice but to quit carrying this book until a revised edition without this quote is printed.

The holy seasons of Advent and Christmas are a time to reflect on God's infinite love for us all and how through the birth of his son, Jesus Christ, Christianity was born. Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Thomas of Aquinas guides readers on their spiritual journey to be closer to God and understand how to live the life of a Christian.

Offering daily selections from St. Thomas of Aquinas for meditation and prayer, this book is a wonderful way to examine your faith and feelings during Advent and Christmas. The words of this revered saint help focus the reader's reflections on the wonder of creation. These daily Scripture readings and meditations offer a better understanding of St. Thomas' passionate beliefs on the importance of our relationship with God. Through the din of advertisements and gift-buying at Christmas time, we are reminded of his thoughts on virtue and the importance of charity and how it is the essence of our Christian life. These daily affirmations also offer a simple Advent action that you can do to keep the prayers and thoughts of St. Thomas with you all day.


Advent and Christmas are a time to prepare for and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Use these reflections and meditations of St. Thomas Aquinas to slow down and remember that because of God' infinite love for us all, Jesus was born--and through him, salvation is ours.

Profile
    Son of the Count of Aquino, born in the family castle in Lombardy near Naples. Educated by Benedictine monks at Monte Cassino, and at the University of Naples. He secretly joined the mendicant Dominican friars in 1244. His noble family kidnapped and imprisoned him for a year to keep him out of sight, and deprogram him, but he rejoined his order in 1245.

    He studied in Paris from 1245-1248 under Saint Albert the Great, then accompanied Albertus to Cologne. Ordained in 1250, then returned to Paris to teach. Taught theology at University of Paris. He wrote defenses of the mendicant orders, commentaries on Aristotle and Lombard's Sentences, and some bible-related works, usually by dictating to secretaries. He won his doctorate, and taught in several Italian cities. Recalled by king and university to Paris in 1269, then recalled to Naples in 1272 where he was appointed regent of studies while working on the Summa Theologica.

    On 6 December 1273 he experienced a divine revelation which so enraptured him that he abandoned the Summa, saying that it and his other writing were so much straw in the wind compared to the reality of the divine glory. He died four months later while en route to the Council of Lyons, overweight and with his health broken by overwork.

    His works have been seminal to the thinking of the Church ever since. They systematized her great thoughts and teaching, and combined Greek wisdom and scholarship methods with the truth of Christianity. Pope Leo VIII commanded that his teachings be studied by all theology students. He was proclaimed Doctor of the Church in 1567.
