On December 6, 1273, the great philosopher and theologian, Thomas Aquinas, was humbly kneeling in front of the Blessed Sacrament. A witness reported that he saw Thomas rising up in the air in front of the large crucifix. He then heard the crucifix speak: “Thou has written well of Me, Thomas. What reward do you ask?” Then Thomas replied, “Only Thyself, Lord.”
Thomas’ love for Jesus is echoed in Tantum Ergo and O Salutaris Hostia. These two hymns that he wrote are often sung at Benediction. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. Thomas Aquinas, who had a burning love and devotion to Christ in the Eucharist.
