 Our Description

“St. Thomas is a master of the spiritual life.”
L’Osservatore Romano 
(official Vatican newspaper)

Improve your own spiritual life by carrying this pocket edition of his meditations where ever you go. In them, St. Thomas recalls Christ’s words, “Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect,” and shows you how to fulfill His command in the midst of your everyday duties.

Read and meditate on a few pages when you awaken, before work, or perhaps during a quiet moment after dinner. Do so and you’ll soon see the amazing difference it makes in your life: you’ll come to love God tenderly, and you’ll find it easier to do His will.

Among the many topics in these holy pages:

  • Serenity: how you can attain it (and why it’s absolutely essential to the life of every Christian)
  • Your past sins: how to deal with them and then get on with your life
  • Tolerating evil: when it’s simply wrong to keep quiet
  • St. Thomas’s stern (but wise) warning to parents and priests — and to anyone who cares for souls!
  • The one easy thing you can do right now to help you live by God’s example
  • You’re a forgiving person? Good! Here are two snares to watch out for
  • You go to Mass and say the Rosary daily. But are your intentions pure?
  • St. Thomas helps you decide
  • Two short paragraphs guaranteed to help you learn patience
  • What God promises even the most wretched sinner
  • “God loves everyone just the way he is.” Read this book to find out what the truth really is
  • The one attribute of God that offers you consolation — even if you’re very wicked
  • And much more to help you grow holy, one day at a time!
 

“St. Thomas is rightly esteemed as the bulwark and glory of the Catholic Faith.” 
Pope Leo XIII

“It is remarkable how the truths of the Faith spoken in the 13th century are so applicable today.”

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.
