Thomas Aquinas Meditations for Every Day
Rev. E.C. McEniry
books lift the spirit. Others improve character. Others sharpen the mind. This
one does all three.
Truly great Catholic devotional books that transform you heart, intellect and soul can be counted on the fingers of two hands. This is one of them.
from St. Thomas Aquinas's masterpiece, the Summa Theologicae,
and from his other writings, it features:
365 daily meditations, for each day of the liturgical year
Retreat conferences for priests and for the laity
St. Thomas's magnificent hymns ...
all translated from Aquinas's Latin into simple English.
Together, these meditations will:
enliven and enrich lackluster spiritual life
stimulate growth in virtue, and give strength to resist vice
improve your grasp of essential dogmas and doctrines
aid in proper reception of the Holy Eucharist, and in making good confessions.
meditations may truly be called a compendium of the Summa, since they are culled
mostly therefrom ... and arranged, with references to the original, for daily
use throughout the year,? observes translator E.C. McEniry, OP.
The book is ingeniously organized:
PART ONE: For Advent, excerpts from St. Thomas on the Incarnation, followed by sections on the Birth of Our Lord, His Infancy and Public Life. For Lent: reflections on Our Lord's Sufferings and Death on the Cross. For Easter and afterwards: your regeneration through grace, through glorification and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and through the Eucharist, ending with the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
PART TWO: From July through Advent, five sections deal with God and His Attributes, the Three Ways of Spiritual Advancement (purgative, illuminative and unitive), and finally St. Thomas's treatment of the Four Last Things.
the meditations are 17 topics (with exercises) for spiritual retreats from St.
Thomas, including œThe State of Perfection,?
œThe Good Use of Time,? œThe
Necessity of the Three Vows,? and œThe Works
of the Active Life?
Lastly, prayers by St. Thomas for before and after Communion, for obtaining virtues and other special intentions -- and a short prayer which Aquinas himself said every day
