    Please Saint Thomas watch over and guide my son over the next few months in his college application and decision process. Please help him find the strength to remain positive in light of the difficult time he is having with his hockey coach whose only goal is to belittle him and tell him he will never play hockey in college.

    Ah that Thomas Aquinas is one of my favorite due to his very high intellecutual and
    is right about church and God together is perfect for us to follow...so I have lots of
    books about him, the more i study , the more i feel stronger faith in God greater
    due to his influenced written "Summa Theologica"...I wish i could have a special
    spiritual director to discuss deeper about his meaning many things ....not only him
    but there is alot of saints that said same thing deeper into core small to development
    to understand to face today world...I love and continuing study and read and even
    my written about their believes...I knew God is very speical to send saints to us for
    us to understand about Him and His church!!....thats very stronger faith!

    Thomas Aquinas was my Confirmation Saint, and to this day, he is my go-to Saint for prayers. His initials adorn the upper right corner of my schoolwork, and his prayer for students is forever in my wallet for when I am struggling in school, or preparing for a difficult test.
