Light of Truth – 31

The Light of Truth will from this week forward take a little more of a structured approach by following the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas OP in order to discover more in depth various aspects of our faith.

Fr. Luuk Jansen OP talks with Fr. John Harris OP about Saint Thomas as a theologian and the reason he wrote the Summa. There will also be a review on the structure of the work, and the fundamental role of God in the doing of Theology. It is not the intention to provide a commentary on the Summa in the program but rather to use the questions in the Summa to look at our faith and make it more relevant in our own lives by deepening our understanding of God.
