These words, written by the great theologian St. Thomas Aquinas, have inspired millions over the past seven centuries. St. Thomas's devotion to the Eucharist was profound. His brother Dominicans recalled that he would spend long hours kneeling before the tabernacle. When he faced a particularly difficult problem, he would lean against the tabernacle, as if to rest against the Master's heart as did the Beloved Disciple at the Last Supper. Now St. Thomas's immortal poems of praise -- in both their original Latin and stunning translation -- have been assembled along with insightful meditations and commentary by Mike Aquilina, in Praying in the Presence of Our Lord with St. Thomas Aquinas. Since we usually hear St. Thomas's hymns during Eucharistic Adoration, it is especially fitting to let his words join ours before the altar. Pray these prayers as St. Thomas did, in the presence of Our Lord, before His tabernacle, where He dwells among us.
