St. Thomas Aquinas, priest and doctor of the Church, patron of all universities and of students. His feast day is January 28th. He was born toward the end of the year 1226.

    Why this would happen, I have no idea. But in a dream, a certain Monsignor of Irish descent was dressed in a grey jacket, and with his arms folded asked very emphatically: Who was Saint Thomas Aquinas ? Well, when I awoke, I automatically thought that this was St. Thomas the Apostle, or, Thomas the Doubter. And, Lord knows, I can certainly relate to St. Thomas the Doubter better than I can St. Thomas Aquinas. There is so much on St. Thomas Aquinas, that I'm overwhelmed. I would need what St. Thomas Aquinas was all about in 2 sentences or less.

    If someone can help me here, please do !

    Thank you very much !

    Dear Tammy Bennett,
    The memorial of St. Thomas Aquinas is celebrated in the Novus Ordo mass ('new mass' as of 1962) on January 28th. The traditional feast (which goes back for centuries and is still celebrated today when the Traditional Latin Mass is offered) for him is March 7th. Known as the 'Angelic Doctor', he is patron of Catholic Schools, Scholars, Theologians, and Booksellers.

    Feast days change if another saint had something happen on that day. Like if a saint died on The Holy Innocents day their feast day would be moved to another date. Saint Thomas old feast probably was the same date as another major saint. It happens a lot.

    Holy Saint Thomas, I pray for your intercession and help as I start a new semester of studies. I especially ask you deeply for your fervent prayers for my economics examination and a challenging group assignment coming up in the next few days. Pray for us all who come to you for your intercessory prayers - for you know exactly how challenging it is to be disciplined and to devote ourselves to consistent study. Please pray for us all who are in need of your prayers and guidance. Pray that we would find mercy and grace, wisdom and direction and succeed - especially where we are finding it tough to study or pass. Pray for me - and for all students here, please.

    Intelligent and virtuous, yet referred to as "dumb fox"! It's funny how God's gifts very often come in the mos unobservable packages.
