The heart that we need

Give me O Lord, a steadfast heart,
which no unworthy affection
will drag downwards.
Give me an unconquered heart,
which no tribulation can wear out.
Give me an upright heart,
which no unworthy purpose
may tempt aside.

–Thomas Aquinas

A prayer for the journey

Give me, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy thought can drag downwards; an unconquered heart which no tribulation can wear out; an upright heart which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

–Thomas Aquinas
(1225–1274)

The Creator and his creation

Any error about creation
also leads to an error
about God.

–St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

Can’t live without joy

No one can live without joy.
That is why one
deprived of spiritual joy
goes over to carnal pleasures.

–Thomas Aquinas
