Storyboard Text

  • At age five, Saint Thomas Aquinas was sent to a Benedictine monastery at Monte Cassino so that he could become an Abbott. But King Frederick III sent his troops to occupy the monastery as a fortress.
  • He moved to the University of Naples where he enjoyed a poor group called the Dominicans. His rich family did not like this group and tried to stop him in every way possible from being with them.
  • His family did not like the Dominicans so much that they kidnapped him and put him in a family couple. Nothing was changing his mind so he joined the convent in 1224, studying under Albert the Great.
  • Thomas became well known for his writings in philosophy and theology. His most famous work, the Summa Theologiae, contains five volumes of thought on all the Christian mysteries
  • His love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament led him to write prayers and hymns that are still used to honor the Eucharist.
  • While celebrating Mass on December 6, 1273, he received a revelation from God. After that, he stopped writing. He said that all he had seen was all he needed. Thomas died at age 49 on his way to the Council of Lyons, France
