Today is the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas (born 1225/1227- died 1274). St. Thomas Aquinas was a scholar, theologian, philosopher and writer and so he is appropriately the patron saint of universities and students. To celebrate the life of St. Thomas Aquinas I had planned to take Monkey to our university for a picnic. But because I need to ‘take it easy’ we didn’t go. However I did find on online copy of St. Thomas Aquinas: The Dumb Ox by G.K. Chesterton in the Catholic Primer library under Authors:c. I haven’t finished reading it (it’s long) but I like Chesterton’s comparisons between St. Franscis and St. Thomas Aquinas (quite funny!).
