Understanding God

Closeup of hand writing in journal


We know St. Thomas Aquinas (1226-1274) as one of the Catholic Church’s greatest theologians and philosophers. But the road to all that wisdom began when he was a youngster and asked the same question so many children do: “What is God?”


God, I adore you, I confess my sins to you, I thank you for your many graces,
and I humbly ask for your help.
I don’t need to know what you are
to recognize your omnipotence, and to thank you.


Journal or talk with a friend about what God is—in your life and in the world.
