Mike Aquilina

Poet of the Eucharist

Thanks to those who asked about my little book on the poetry of St. Thomas Aquinas. All of the poems are about the Eucharist — its pre-history (in the Old Testament types), history (in the New Testament), and theology, as well as the Church’s devotion. The book includes the full text of all the poems, in the original Latin and in English translation; an introduction that provides biographical and historical context; and fifty meditations on aspects of the poems. There’s a sizable bibliography in the back, for those who want to conduct further research. The book’s available, of course, on Amazon.
