Saint Thomas Aquinas

At Mass this morning I heard that today is the Memorial of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Priest and Doctor of the Church (d. 1274). Then the homily by the young priest was a 2 minute reflection on that. I was so excited. Finally, I knew a saint mentioned in Mass. I had received for review, the book "Practical theology spiritual direction from St. Thomas Aquinas; 358 ways your mind can help you to become a saint from the Summa Theologiae" by Peter Kreeft (2014, isbn 978-1-58617-968-7). Kreeft admits in the introduction that reading 4,000 pages of Summa is a challenge, but in it he's found more personal spiritual nourishment and more motivation to be holy than in most other spiritual writers.
