Thomas Aquinas

Eternal God,

who enriched your Church with learning and holiness

of your servant Thomas Aquinas:

give to all who seek you

a humble mind and a pure heart

that they may know your Son, Jesus Christ

as the way, the truth and the life;

who is alive and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit

one God, now and for ever. Amen

Vicar giggled as I prayed for Thomas Aquinas at mid day communion.  He knows how I struggle with clever theologians especially those who make things too complicated for us ordinary folk. But, I am more than happy to pray for all those with a humble mind that try their best each day to seek out God.

Interesting gospel today too.  Mark 4 21-25.    “Pay attention to what your hear:  the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you”  As this is sandwiched between parables about growing seeds and mustard seeds I assume it is to do with how you use your faith rather then about material stuff.  The more we practise our faith the more it becomes part of who we are.  The more we seek Him out the more we get back.

Better carry on seeking then!
