January 28 - Feast Day of St. Thomas Aquinas


16040lg.jpg


Today is the feast day of my favorite philosopher-theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas.

Here is a prayer to St. Thomas that I have prayed several times since becoming Catholic:

Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas, prince of theologians and model of philosophers, bright ornament of the Christian world, light of the Church and patron of all Catholic schools, who didst learn wisdom without guile and dost communicate it without envy, pray for us to the Son of God who is Wisdom itself, that, by the coming of the Spirit of Wisdom upon us, we may clearly understand that which thou didst teach, and, by imitating thee, may bring to completion that which thou didst do; that we may be made partakers both of thy doctrine and thy holiness, whereby thou didst shine on earth even as the sun; and finally that we may enjoy with thee in heaven for evermore the most delectable fruits of the same, praising together with thee divine Wisdom through endless ages.

Amen

Francis Schaeffer to the contrary; St. Thomas of Aquinas has ecumenical appeal. Dr. John H. Gerstner wrote an article for the May 1994 issue of Tabletalk entitled "Aquinas Was a Protestant" Prof. Gerstner pointed out not only what a fine Christian thinker Aquinas was but also why he should be regarded as a protoprotestant, because he seemed to share Luther's understand of the doctrine of justification. This triggered all sorts of outrage from the VanTillians and the Clarkians.

Dr. Robert Reymond vindicated Aquinas from the charge of being a protestant in an article published on the Clarkian website.

Cool!.. Nice work...e

Prof. Beckwith: Which of the twin evils was responsible for the attack on the USS Liberty-liberalism or jihadism?

Should I surmise we can take your position as: let Israel do whatever it wants to and get away with it?

And I am not just talking about the Liberty, or the Freedom Flotiila, or Rachael Corrie either.
