St. Thomas Aquinas, the Church’s Common Doctor, is not only the author of the Summa Theologiae and many other great works of theology, philosophy, and commentary.  He is also the author, at the request of Pope Urban IV, of profound liturgical hymns and prayers celebrating the mystery of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist for the Feast of Corpus Christi.  We sing many of these hymns, not only on the Feast of Corpus Christi but throughout the year, including at Holy Hour and Benediction.  Join us for a seminar exploring the theological and spiritual riches of St. Thomas Aquinas’s Eucharistic poetry, both in Latin and in translation.
