This site is dedicated to the teaching of St Thomas Aquinas.

In particular, the site aims to offer online the commentaries on the Summa written by Pere Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. (To date the site has Reality, Christ The Saviour with The One God 'under construction'.) The list of commentaries available in English (as books) are

The Summa itself is available online at http://newadvent.org/summa or http://www.op.org/summa/

"To think of oneself as nothing, and always to think well and highly of others is the best and most perfect wisdom. Wherefore, if you see another sin openly or commit a serious crime, do not consider yourself better, for you do not know how long you can remain in good estate. All men are frail, but you must admit that none is more frail than yourself. "

Thomas Kempis

"The essence of perfection is to embrace the will of God in all things, prosperous or adverse. In prosperity, even sinners find it easy to unite themselves to the divine will; but it takes saints to unite themselves to God's will when things go wrong and are painful to self-love. Our conduct in such instances is the measure of our love of God."

St Alphonsus de Liguori
