The Humble, Contemplative Thomas Aquinas

Reginald Garrigou-LagrangeThe humble Thomas Aquinas was always inclined to silence and recollection… His whole heart was give up to the love of God while he was pondering and solving the most difficult questions… Questions seemingly remote from this supreme end [of contemplative love] are so only for a soul that has not yet reached that height where all is lost in God, the beginning and end of all things. Undoubtedly Saint Thomas was raised to the highest degrees of mystical contemplation, and certainly his teaching will not hinder souls in their ascent.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
