We know 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.
