I recently began reading St. Thomas Aquinas by G.K. Chesterton. I highly recommend this book!
Although I do not know if the following tale Chesterton shares about our Angelic Doctor is true, I just had to share it with you:
"It was of him [St.Thomas Aquinas] that the tale was told, and would certainly have been told more widely among us if it had been told of a Puritan, that the Pope pointed to his gorgeous Papal Palace and said, "Peter can no longer say 'Silver and gold have I none' "; and the Spanish friar answered, "No, and neither can he now say, 'Rise and walk.' "
St. Thomas Aquinas pray for us.
