Devoting Time With Thomas Aquinas


I began tweeting links yesterday to the St Thomas Aquinas Novena I pieced together two years ago. For most of you, the memorial of the Angelic Doctor will be observed a week from  Tuesday. In my parish, the observance is a solemnity, as it is our patronal feast. So we invoke him on next weekend, the first of two consecutive “White” Sundays for us. And our novena began yesterday.

One of my favorite quotes from the man:

To bear with patience wrongs done to oneself is a mark of perfection, but to bear with patience wrongs done to someone else is a mark of imperfection and even of actual sin.

Feel free to use the novena; copy, share if you and your friends or spiritual associates have a devotion to this great saint.
