Greetings Patrons and Friends,
Yesterday was the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, considered one of the Catholic Church’s greatest theologians. In the fresco painting in the Gallery of the Candelabra in the Vatican Museums, we see St. Thomas kneeling as he offers his works, and the response from God in the words: BENE SCRIPSISTI DE ME THOMA: “You wrote well of me, Thomas”.
(Ludwig Seitz 1844-1908)
The January cover of Magnificat features another painting in the Vatican of St Thomas. This one is by the domenican artist Fra Angelico and it is in the Niccoline Chapel.
