“If God is a dialogical unity [referring to the Trinity], a being in relation, the human creature made in his image and likeness reflects this constitution: thus he is called to fulfil himself in dialogue, in conversation, in encounter.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Homily for Trinity Sunday (2008).)

Course: Thomas Aquinas on Charity

Rev Dr Andrew Murray sm
JAndrew Murray sm
Starts 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.
