Here is a short reflection on the Angelic Doctor and the sources of the trial that is upon the Church at this time, using the following two quotes from his writings. There are three sources of trial for the Church: (i) external persecutions, (ii) undermining of the Truth from within by heresy and spreading of error, and (iii) corruption of members through sin (cf. Prologue to Comm. on Colossians). “Human wisdom is always set up against in opposition to the Divine wisdom, when men consider human learning to be paramount in importance, and when they endeavor to make the truths of faith subservient to the teaching of human sciences. This error is the origin of all heresy”—St. Thomas Aquinas, Apology for Religious Orders, chapter XII. Are not all of these elements now present in the Church at this time?
