The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas
#16
To Melkite's credit, I am impressed that he so zealously perseveres in the Catholic Faith despite the fact that the Church has such praise* for a doctor of the Church he finds so contemptible. Most, finding the Church's teachings no to their liking, would simply leave the Faith for something that appeals to their own personal tastes; but the fact that Melkite perseveres in the Catholic Faith despite his misgivings about St. Thomas (though, he must submit to the Church's authority in this matter) indicates that he is a Catholic not because of preference but because he knows it is the Truth. May God reward him for that!



* The Church has even mandated the study of the Angelic Doctor in Her own Code of Canon Law.
