St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to help you see that hope and trust are like a closely knit fabric. The threads of hope are woven into trust. One does not exist without the other in the heart. As trust and love are so closely interconnected, trust brings hope into relationship with love.”

“The soul that trusts also hopes in the Lord. No one trusts in the Lord that does not first love Him. This is why Holy Love is the foundation of all virtue. No one can desire holiness apart from Holy Love. The more sound the foundation of Holy Love, the more the soul is able to trust and so, to hope.”

“It is as though love is the needle pulling trust and hope together into a fine fabric.”
