Hear this! A sower went out to sow” (Mark 4:1).
By any measure, one of the great Catholic “sowers” of God’s word was St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274). This 13th century Dominican friar organized and presented Catholic doctrine in a transparent framework based on the methodical and systematic exposition of knowledge perfected by Aristotle for the sciences. His brilliant insights are evident in Catholic teaching today. A great sower produced a great harvest for teachers and preachers for centuries to come.
