About

Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off:
my path and my line thou hast searched out.

Psalm 138 (Douay-Rheims)

 28 January (2016)

Today is the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, patron saint of students, and a prolific writer, and today I decide to start this record of books I’ve read.

As human beings, we never stop learning and as Catholics, we certainly should keep learning for life. Lots of learning can come from the words written or recorded by others who are more learned than us.

Two priests played a part in the birth of the idea for this blog: one who inspired me to read more diligently for spiritual growth and knowledge and the other who put the thought in my head to share with others what I gained from reading. Thank you!

I must also thank my (earthly) father for setting the example of spiritual reading and reflection and our Heavenly Father, for the gift of His Word and for His gift of words.

Peace,
wordie
