Ad Te Levávi Ánimam Meam

To Thee have I lifted up my soul (Introit – 1st Sunday of Advent)

St. Thomas Aquinas

Posted by james0235 on January 28, 2008

Today is the Memorial of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor, in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. In the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (and in the Dominican Rite) he is honored on March 7th, the date of his entry into eternal life. As I have a particular devotion to Thomas Aquinas (I took Thomas as my Confirmation name in honor of him) I will be celebrating his feast both today and on March 7th.

God our Father,
you made Thomas Aquinas known for his holiness and learning. Help us to grow in wisdom by his teaching, and in holiness by imitating his faith. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
