"They took him and they kidnapped him and they took him home and they put him in a room! Because they didn't want him to be Dominican!!! I guess they didn't know how good God is. That makes me sad..." A minute later. "And it makes me mad."
I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!

St. Thomas Aquinas. educated as a child by the Benedictines, his family expected him to join that important order and become the abbot, bringing prestige to the family. His choice to join the new order was a scandal to him. Great description.ReplyDelete
