Hebrews 11:1-2, 8-19; Canticle Luke 1:69-75; Mark 4:35-41

Do good avoid evil

Thomas, born in Italy in 1225, was a Dominican priest. He studied in Paris and Cologne. His writings in theology, philosophy and scripture arose from a life of faith and prayer. He is the patron saint of teachers and students. Thomas’ principle of natural law was that good is to be done and evil avoided. Thomas wrote that reason reveals natural laws that are good for humans – self-preservation, marriage and family, and the desire to know God. Let us take time to reflect on our lives and our desire to do good.
