By John of St. Thomas | Introduction by Cajetan Cuddy, O.P.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit remains a classic text of Thomistic theology and spirituality. Its author, John of St. Thomas, provides a marvelous example of how sound philosophy and theology bear significant implications for happy living. This book, like its topic, may intimidate the casual reader. However, any investment of time and energy given to its pages does not go unrewarded. Father Walter Farrell, O.P., said it well: “Here in this book, even the most unscholarly will get a glimpse, again and again, of the glory of God in the soul of man.”
"Priests and seminarians will find in this book a rich source for pastoral counseling. Students and teachers will learn about aspects of the moral life that oftentimes go unnoticed in the standard literature. Everyone will rejoice to discover gifts from on high that energize the everyday Christian life here below.” ~Romanus Cessario, O.P.
"This classic will provide guidance to the perplexed and encouragement to the weary." ~Scott Hahn
John of St. Thomas (1589–1644) is one of the greatest figures in the Thomist tradition. A master of philosophy, theology, and the spiritual life, he served as priest-confessor to the Spanish King Philip IV. Jacques Maritain regarded John of St. Thomas as one of the most significant thinkers in modern Western philosophy.
