Happy feast day of St Thomas Aquinas!

Today is the traditional feast day of St Thomas Aquinas, patron of Catholic schools, confessor, and (Angelic) Doctor of the Church!

St. Thomas Aquinas, depicted at St. Rose Church, Springfield, KY (fun fact, this window is [practically] identical to that found at St. Patrick’s Church, Columbus, OH)
The super psalm antiphon from First Vespers is lovely:

The Blessed Thomas, Doctor of the Church, light of the world, glory of Italy, virgin shining with the bloom of chastity, rejoices in a twofold crown of glory.

As a gift to the digital world on this feast day, here are images of two scans I made of paintings that were once featured in the illustrious Church of Saint Louis Bertrand, Louisville, KY, which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary this past October.  (Images taken from the Paintings in St. Louis Bertrand Church, Louisville, KY, printed by The Rosary Press, Somerset, OH, December 1916, written by T.L. Crowley, OP)
