On The Feast Day of St. Thomas Aquinas

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.

  1. Hello,
    Just pointing to a possible typing error.....The title is St. Thomas Aquinas not St.Dominic, right? I do not think that Chesterton wrote a book about St.Dominic.....
    Anyways, Great post!

    You were most kind to point out that error. I have tri-focals now. Guess the dog is next. God bless!
