Saint of the week

Saint Thomas Aquinas

28th January 

“Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Præstet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui

 Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.
Amen.”

 Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274)

 

The painting of Saint Thomas Aquinas, shown above, is a panel from the ‘Demidoff Altarpiece’ made for the high altar of San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno, east central Italy, pained by Carlo Crivelli in 1476.
