St. Thomas Aquinas

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

“Today I have come to point out that the most important grace given freely at this site here is conversion of heart. This is true, for the conversion of heart is like the vase that holds all the other flowers of virtues. The water in the vase is the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to pursue the life of virtue; the virtues are nourished by this inspiration.”

“Please note that flowers in a vase still need attention to stay alive. From time to time they need fresh water. So, in the spiritual life, the soul must be continually open to fresh inspirations as to living deeper in the virtues.”

“The fragrance of any bouquet is a great part of its beauty. The fragrance of the spiritual life is the Holy Love in the heart which permeates the soul and the environment around him.”
