Saints

St. Bonaventure

Bonaventure lived at the same time as the great St. Thomas Aquinas, and he was equally renowned for his knowledge. He and Aquinas were both asked to write prayers for the celebration of the new feast of Corpus Christi. When Bonaventure saw the office that Aquinas had written, he did not even finish his. In his humility he saw that what Aquinas had written was much more worthy to be prayed by the Church.
