As I was going through my morning prayers and readings, I found that today the church honors St. Thomas the Apostle. I told my parents about it at breakfast figuring my dad would take special interest as he shares the name. My dad told me that when he was in elementary school, he chose St. Thomas Aquinas to be his patron saint. He didn’t want to be a “doubter”, he wanted to be smart like the doctor of the church. I think he chose right, and I think St. Thomas Aquinas has been particularly generous with him.
I Found God today seeing how a patron saint has made a difference in my dad’s life.
