Quotes From St. Thomas Aquinas

"Hold firmly that our Faith is identical with that of the ancients. Deny this and you dissolve the unity of the Church."
"If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever."

"The Church has ever proved indestructible. Her persecutors have failed to destroy her; in fact, it is during time of persecution that the Church grows more and more, while the persecutors themselves and those whom the Church would to destroy, are the very ones who come to nothing."

The Church has always prevailed. The Church WILL always prevail.

The Church is bigger than any of its participants.

Regardless of their foibles, the Church survives them.
