St. Thomas Aquinas, Priest and Doctor (1225 – 1274)
“Whoever wishes to live perfectly should do nothing but disdain what Christ disdained on the cross and desire what he desired, for the cross exemplifies every virtue.”--St. Thomas Aquinas For Reflection:
Read Matthew 27:35-50. What virtues do I see exemplified by Jesus on the cross? What What did Jesus disdain on the cross? What did he desire? What virtues do I see exemplified by Jesus on the cross? In what ways can I do likewise?
