“The Church has been justified in consistently proposing Saint Thomas as a master of thought and a model of the right way to do theology….
The Magisterium has repeatedly acclaimed the merits of Saint Thomas’ thought and made him the guide and model for theological studies.… The Magisterium’s intention has always been to show how Saint Thomas is an authentic model for all who seek the truth. In his thinking, the demands of reason and the power of faith found the most elevated synthesis ever attained by human thought, for he could defend the radical newness introduced by Revelation without ever demeaning the venture proper to reason.” Saint John Paul II
On March 7, 1963, the feast of the University’s patron Saint Thomas Aquinas: (The present Feast Day of Thomas Aquinas is January 28.)
Pope John XXIII visited the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum and with the motu proprio Dominicanus Ordo, raised the Angelicum to the rank of Pontifical University. Thereafter it would be known as the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in the City.
Saints John XXIII, John Paul II and Thomas Aquinas, pray for us
