With the "Dumb Ox" in the Stable
So it is appropriate that St. Thomas should give us not a loud bellowing, but a gentle mooing (to keep the analogy going) as we prepare for Christ's coming during this Advent Season. Our Dominican brother, Fr. Andrew Carl Wisdom, OP, opens up before us the treasure of St. Thomas' writings in his new book, Advent & Christmas: Wisdom from St. Thomas Aquinas.
We just got our copies in and they are now available from our online gift shoppe. The book is designed so that each day we feast on the wisdom of St. Thomas as he teaches us to go deeper into the mystery of the Incarnation. After a short text from one of his works there is a scripture reading, a prayer and an "Advent action"--a way to put into practice what we have learned from our lectio.
