"The supreme perfection of man in this life is to be so united to God that all his soul with all its faculties and powers are so gathered into the Lord God that he becomes one spirit with him, and remembers nothing except God, is aware of and recognises nothing but God, but with all his desires unified by the joy of love, he rests contentedly in the enjoyment of his Maker alone."

St Albert the Great

"What good does it do to speak learnedly about the Trinity if, lacking humility, you displease the Trinity? Indeed it is not learning that makes a man holy and just, but a virtuous life makes him pleasing to God. "

Thomas á Kempis

"Father, may they be one as You and I are one".

Catholic Theology

The greatest work on theology ever written is the Summa of St Thomas Aquinas.

A precis of this work, called "A Tour of the Summa" by Monsignor Paul Glenn, is available online at CatholicTheology.info

It is a marvellous work for the modern catholic in a hurry. Happy reading!
