His life was dedicated to studying, lecturing and writing his major works were Summa contra Gentes and Summa Theologica but Thomas was also a mystic, engaging in deeply contemplative prayer that was sometimes ecstatic. In 1272 he experienced a divine revelation, after which he declared his writings so much straw in comparison to what he had seen, and composed no more in the brief period before his death. Sit at the Masters Feet Thomas Aquinas as spiritual guide is inseparable from Thomas Aquinas as teacher; 15 days of prayer with Saint Thomas is also 15 days of absorbing the teachings of the Angelic Doctor. From the nature of God to the Blessed Virgin, from the body of Christ offered on Calvary to the body of Christ incarnate in the Church, here is a lucid distillation of Saint Thomass thought and philosophy an invitation to a 15day period of reflection and prayer with the Universal Doctor.
