I am here, Thomas Aquinas.
I now abide in the Celestial Heavens. I was a seeker of truth on earth, and this followed me here. Oh, it was very difficult for me to realize that many of my ideas were false, but I simply had to yield to Truth. For the only thing that can save us and make us happy is Truth, and I have found this truth in the New Birth of the soul, which I now possess.
As to politics, adopt a philosophical view of nonattachment. God’s Truth is the most important reality. Political realities are changeable, but the principles by which God relates to humanity do not change. So if you will always keep these principles in mind, you won’t be sidetracked by the vagaries of politics.
It is a new day, and God intends to bring harmony to the earth, despite the forces that seek inharmony. All that is required on your part are trust and faith, for God’s purposes will be fulfilled. On that you can rely.
Saint Thomas Aquinas , O.P. (also Thomas of Aquin or Aquino; c. 1225 – 7 March 1274) was an Italian Catholic priest in the Dominican Order, a philosopher and theologian in the scholastic tradition, known as Doctor Angelicus, Doctor Universalis and Doctor Communis. He is frequently referred to as Thomas because “Aquinas” refers to his residence rather than his surname. He was the foremost classical proponent of natural theology, and the father of the Thomistic school of philosophy and theology.
Aquinas is held in the Catholic Church to be the model teacher for those studying for the priesthood (Code of Canon Law, Can. 252, §3). The works for which he is best-known are the Summa Theologica and the Summa Contra Gentiles. One of the 33 Doctors of the Church, he is considered by many Catholics to be the Catholic Church’s greatest theologian and philosopher. Consequently, many institutions of learning have been named after him. (Source: Wikipedia)
