“Give us, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; give us an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; give us an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. Bestow upon us also, O Lord our 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
Today in the church we honor the patron of schools, colleges, and students. I have always been inspired and fascinated by Aquinas. Following his example I recognize that it is so important to read, pray, study and learn and never give in to the fear of asking questions.
Still another favorite quote for me from Aquinas, ” Wonder is the desire of knowledge.” Feed your wonder today and everyday!
