Most lovely lyricist and courteous troubadour
Francis! Knight errant in a quest divine;
Joyful in suffering, rich in being poor,
Teach me your song, and make its cadence mine!
Let me, too, follow where your feet have trod:
Through flowers and thorns
Birds, beasts (and hurting men)
Along the love-strewn path which leads to God
Making this world a paradise again.
TWO OR THREE times a year, St. Dominic’s Convent, Stone, Staffordshire, hosts a St Thomas Aquinas Study Weekend. These weekends focus on an aspect of our Catholic Faith: on what it means to be human, for example, or on the Beatitudes. There are talks and discussions.The topics are studied under the guidance of St Thomas Aquinas, who in his Summa Theologiae has left us both rich material and a helpful method of approach.
