The Aquinas Prayer Book: The Prayers and Hymns of St. Thomas Aquinas
By St. Thomas Aquinas
Rich and moving, the prayers and hymns of St. Thomas Aquinas have long been considered to be among the Church's greatest treasures.
Now you can bring these treasures into your own prayer life with The Aquinas Prayer Book — the first complete English language collection of these stirring prayers.
This handy and beautiful leatherette volume brings you all of St. Thomas's known prayers and hymns in their Latin originals, along with new English translations. These translations render the originals with superb precision and eloquence that rivals St. Thomas's own masterly use of Latin.
These works are not meant just to be read, but to be prayed. After all, these are the prayers that St. Thomas himself used to bring radiant order to his own spiritual life: upon rising, before setting to work, during periods of meditation, before Confession and Holy Communion, and even as he received the Last Rites. Their subjects are as varied as your own daily spiritual needs. Each one will deepen your faith, enlighten your understanding, and lift your heart to God.
