My Life With The Saints PDF Print

“My Life With The Saints”
by James Martin, S.J.


Francis, writes Chesterton, was a “lean and lively little man; thin as a thread and vibrant as a bowstring; and in his motions like an arrow from a bow.”  Thomas, on the other hand, he describes as a “huge, heavy bull of a man, fat and slow and quiet; very mild and magnanimous but not very sociable; shy, even apart from the humility of holiness.” … But it was not the philosophy or the theology of Thomas that drew me to the saint—that is to say, it was less his elegant argumentation and more the person of Thomas and his life.  I liked him more for who he was than for what he wrote.  Specifically, it was the person I met in G.K. Chesterton’s biography Saint Thomas Aquinas whom I found so compelling and attractive.  The immensely learned man given to deep humility.  The theologian whose lifelong study of God drew him ever closer to God.  The famously busy scholar who was not too busy to write a poem or a hymn.  The active person whose life was rooted in prayer. … Today Thomas might be taken as a model for our rational age, with his reasoned approach to difficult theological questions.  He thought that all theology flowed naturally from God and God’s purposes.  And since God has given us the gift of reason, we should use reason in service to God, by trying to understand the world better.

(excerpt from “My Life With The Saints” by James Martin, S.J., page 253, 262, 268)

Question of the Week
Adult Question
:  What seeks to tempt you away from God?
Children's Question:  What seeks to tempt you away from God?

All Creation Is Singing God's Praise
Regrettably, many efforts to seek concrete solutions to the environmental crisis have proved ineffective, not only because of powerful opposition, but also because of a more general lack of interest.  Obstructionist attitudes, even on the part of believers, can range from denial of the problem to indifference, nonchalant resignation or blind confidence in technical solutions.  We require a new and universal solidarity.  As the bishops of Southern Africa have stated:  "Everyone's talents and involvement are needed to redress the damage caused by human abuse of God's creation."  (Laudato si' of the Holy Father Francis)
How I Can Help...

  • Read a book about all things green to your children or grandchildren.  Book Suggestion:  The Family Tree by David McPhail--A man inthe 1800s comes upon a beautiful forest and decides to build his home there.  When he clears the land, he leaves one special tree to grace his front yard.  Over the years, several generations of his family enjoy this tree, but it is endangered by a plan to build a highway.  A young boy and his host of animal friends get together to make a stand and give back to the tree which has given them so much.  Grade Level:  4--9

How does care for creation relate to our identity as Christians?  Watch this space for ideas and inspiration in the coming weeks.
