Saint Thomas Aquinas

{

G. K. Chesterton’s Saint Thomas Aquinas was hailed as “The best book ever written on St. Thomas” by leading Aquinas scholar Etienne Gilson.


“The Saint is a medicine because he is an antidote. Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr; he is mistaken for a poison because he is an antidote. He will generally be found restoring the world to sanity by exaggerating whatever the world neglects. . . . Each generation seeks its saint by instinct; and he is not what the people want, but rather what the people need.”

—from Saint Thomas Aquinas
