Saint of the Week
St. Thomas Aquinas
Feast Day: January 28th
Bio: St. Thomas Aquinas is widely regarded as one of the most influential Catholic theologians of all time. He was given to a Benedictine monastery at 5 by his parents, an caused a huge scandal when he left and joined the Dominicans. His family was so upset that they had his brother capture him and keep him locked in the family home for a year! He eventually escaped and went to finish his studies for the priesthood in Rome. His writings are still studied today by Catholics all over the world, and his recognition of human reason as one of God's greatest gifts is a concept that we can all take to heart. St. Thomas Aquinas, pray for us!
