Course: Thomas Aquinas on Charity
Rev Dr Andrew Murray sm
Starts 10am Tuesday June 4
This course will involve a careful reading of section of Saint Thomas Aquinas’s writings on charity, centred on Summa Theologiae II-II qq. 23 – 27. Students will be introduced to Thomas and instructed in how to read his work. Thomas understands charity as a habit created in the human soul by the Holy Spirit. Its object is God, who without grace is beyond the human will. In loving God, a person loves other human beings in so far as they are ordered to God. In this way, Thomas unites the commandments of the Gospel.
Andrew Murray is a Marist Father, who spent most of his life teaching philosophy, first at Catholic Theological Union and then at Catholic Institute of Sydney. He maintains a special interest in Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle.
