The Dumb Ox . . .

Who changed the World!

Today we celebrate the Feast Day of St. Thomas Aquinas whose nick name among the men he attended college classes with was "the dumb ox" both for his size and for the labored way in which he thought out each statement before he made them.

Can you imagine what our faith or the world for that matter would be like without the legacy that this "dumb ox" left behind? Not only his catechetical legacy but his spiritual one as well.

We should all be so deliberate in choosing our words, I think.

Happy Feast Day to Thomas.

Happy Feast Day to us all.
