Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition

Words of St. Thomas Aquinas, Greatest Doctor of the Church

How can a man consider himself to be a Christian, if he desires to enjoy glory with Christ without attaining this glory through the means of suffering with Christ?

Words of St. Thomas Aquinas, in the Catena Aurea on St. Luke, (his commentary on St. Luke’s Gospel), quoting the Venerable Bede, another Doctor of the Church, Ch. 24, section #3.


Catholic Candle note: To assist parents in homeschooling, we call your attention to a new Traditional Catholic homeschool which is now accessible worldwide.  Here is some information about this homeschool:

Angelic Doctor Academy

We would like to introduce Angelic Doctor Academy, a Traditional Catholic homeschool for grades 9 – 12 (lower grades coming soon).  We think Traditional Catholics will appreciate our unique and militantly Traditional Catholic curriculum.  We have written many new textbooks because we saw the problems in many books commonly used, whether they were history, science, or in other disciplines.  We think Catholic parents – especially busy mothers – will appreciate our unique grading system in which we correct everything, including handwritten essays.  This allows the parents to concentrate on teaching, explaining, and keeping order.   Please visit to learn more.   Mention that you are a Catholic Candle subscriber for a 10% discount on materials.  Thank you!
