Aquinas was an Italian priest and incredibly influential philosopher and theologian. He is a stalwart of Natural Theology (finding and arguing for God through nature and what we observe rather than through the Bible or 'revelation'). He is often considered the Catholic Church's greatest philosopher and theologian.

Eternal God,
who enriched your Church with the learning and holiness
of your servant Thomas Aquinas:
give to all who seek you
a humble mind and a pure heart
that they may know your Son Jesus Christ
as the way, the truth and the life;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
