Aquinas and Trent: Part 2

Aquinas and Trent: Part 2, is now posted. Here I talk about Aquinas' understanding of the essence of original sin, in preparation for understanding the theological rationale behind the Fifth Session of the Council of Trent.

Part 1 is available here.

Hello again. I'm glad I've come back to read this blog. While in Prot. leadership in a women's ministry, I keep coming back to read this. I pray it starts to make sense, and I appreciate your prayers as He helps me sort out my questions. I've been in touch with a priest and an Inquiry instructor at the local RCC. Thanks.

Hello Mel,

It is good to hear from you. Happy Easter! Thanks for your note. If something I wrote doesn't make sense to you, please write me and ask me to clarify. I'm glad to hear you've been in touch with a priest. Please keep me posted. Some inquiry instructors are better than others. Pick up copy of the Catholic Catechism, if you don't already have one. Peter Kreeft's Catholic Christianity is also a helpful (and a bit more accessible) summary of the Catechism. May our Lord guide you in this search for the truth.

In the peace of Christ,

- Bryan
