Saint Thomas Aquinas, Priest and Doctor of the Church

Saint Thomas Aquinas is the patron of Catholic schools, colleges, universities; philosophers, theologians, and booksellers.
He was called the Doctor Angelicus, perhaps because of his virtues and, in particular, the sublimity of his thought and the purity of his life... his literary production has something miraculous about it: commentaries on Sacred Scripture; commentaries on the writings of Aristotle; powerful systematic works, among which stands out his Summa Theologiae, treatises and discourses on various subjects. Thomas had an exquisitely Eucharistic soul. The most beautiful hymns that the Liturgy of the Church sings to celebrate the mystery of the Real Presence of the Body and Blood of the Lord in the Eucharist are attributed to his faith and his theological wisdom.
The life and teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas could be summed up in an episode passed down by his ancient biographers. While, as was his wont, the Saint was praying before the Crucifix in the early morning in the chapel of St Nicholas in Naples, Domenico da Caserta, the church sacristan, overheard a conversation. Thomas was anxiously asking whether what he had written on the mysteries of the Christian faith was correct. And the Crucified One answered him: "You have spoken well of me, Thomas. What is your reward to be?". And the answer Thomas gave him was what we too, friends and disciples of Jesus, always want to tell him: "Nothing but Yourself, Lord!"

Santo Tomás de Aquino, Sacerdote y Doctor de la Iglesia

Santo Tomás de Aquino es el santo patrono de las escuelas, colegios y universidades Católicos; filósofos, teólogos y vendedores de libros. Se le ha llamado el Doctor Angelicus, quizá por sus virtudes, en particular la sublimidad del pensamiento y la pureza de la vida… su producción literaria tiene algo de prodigioso: comentarios de la Sagrada Escritura; comentarios de los escritos de Aristóteles; obras sistemáticas influyentes, entre las cuales destaca la Summa Theologiae; y tratados y discursos sobre varios temas. Santo Tomás tuvo un alma exquisitamente eucarística. Los bellísimos himnos que la liturgia que la Iglesia canta para celebrar el misterio de la presencia real del Cuerpo y de la Sangre del Señor en la Eucaristía se atribuyen a su fe y a su sabiduría teológica.
La vida y las enseñanzas de santo Tomás de Aquino se podrían resumir en un episodio transmitido por los antiguos biógrafos. Mientras el Santo, como acostumbraba, oraba ante el crucifijo por la mañana temprano en la capilla de San Nicolás, en Nápoles, Domenico da Caserta, el sacristán de la iglesia, oyó un diálogo. Tomás preguntaba, preocupado, si cuanto había escrito sobre los misterios de la fe cristiana era correcto. Y el Crucifijo respondió: «Tú has hablado bien de mí, Tomás. ¿Cuál será tu recompensa?». Y la respuesta que dio Tomás es la que también nosotros, amigos y discípulos de Jesús, quisiéramos darle siempre: «¡Nada más que tú, Señor!».

The Coat of Arms of the Diocese of Dallas📷

Crests or coats-of-arms tell about the history of a place or a family, the crest of the Diocese of Dallas is no different. Through its imagery, the crest presents a symbolic history of the Diocese of Dallas.

At the top of the crest is a bishop’s mitre, the tall hat worn by bishops that is a symbol of their office. Beneath that is a red shield with a number of objects. Red is the color of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, patron of the diocese. In the upper right hand corner are crossed swords, the symbol of St. Paul who died by the sword. It represents the mission at St. Paul, Texas in Collin County. St. Paul mission was the first Catholic Church in what is now the Diocese of Dallas.

In the lower left corner is a star, it represents the Lone Star of Texas. Running diagonally is a wavy line with three blue fleurs-de-lis. The fleur-de-lis, or flower of life, is a symbol of the Holy Trinity and is also the national symbol of France. In the crest both symbols are meaningful. The wavy line represents the Trinity River, whose original name was Most Holy Trinity. Three fleurs-de-lis represent the Trinity. They also recall the French priests who first served the diocese.
