SaintCast #114, Aquinas for Dummies, B. Kreissl & J. Lonfat, St. Anthony and lost things, altar relics,feedback +1.312.235.2278

Do you understand Aquinas? OK. . I'm not the only one with that difficulty. But today on the SaintCast, two medieval philosophy scholars, Joel Lonfat and Bettina Kreissl-Lonfat tell us why he's so important to the Church, what his major writings meant, who influenced him, and even take us through the Five Ways to come to know God's existence. We also learn of the approval of a miracle in the cause of a Trappist monk, architect, and photographer from Spain, Blessed Brother Rafael. More on relics in the altar from Brazil, and why is St. Anthony the patron saint of lost objects? These topics and more on today's SaintCast.

SaintCast #113, The life of St. Thomas Aquinas, the manger in the stars, St. Jeopardy goes to dogs, feedback +1.312.235.2278

High on a rocky ledge in what was once the kingdom of Sicily, this cousin of the emperor Frederick II contemplated his future while a prisoner in his own family's castle. Who would have thought that he would come to be recognized as one of the greatest minds of the Catholic Church. . .The quiet demeanor of this humble giant of a man led others to believe he was a dunce.  But Aquinas's theology and writings were anything but simple. Tune in to hear the life story of "the Angelic Doctor" of the Catholic Church, author of some of the Church's most beloved hymns, and perhaps the greatest theologian in the history of Christianity.

Try your hand at this week's St. Jeopardy quiz, and win a T-shirt. Feedback and more.
