The Angelic Doctor

Statue of St Thomas Aquinas shown holding the Church with the Eucharist at its centre. This Dominican saint was charged with composing the texts for the feast of Corpus Christi and he is noted for his love for the Eucharist and the teaching which issued from such love. So, he wrote: "Sion, praise the Saviour, praise the leader and pastor in hymns and songs. As much as you are able, so dare to do so, since he is greater than can be praised, nor can he be sufficiently praised"!

 

This statue is from San Esteban in Salamanca.
