Should Old Aquinas Be Forgot?

Last Sunday, like every Sunday, was the Lord’s Day, which supersedes even the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas — the great patristics scholar of the high middle ages. Daniel Boorstin reports that Thomas habitually committed entire works of the Fathers to memory.

I wrote a little book about Thomas’s poetry — started it while I was in college and finished it around twenty years later. For the feast day I talked up St. Thomas with Bruce and Kris at KVSS Radio, and they kindly posted the audio on their Aquilina page.
