Saint Thomas Aquino - Doctor of the Church (1225-1274).
The great Saint Thomas was born of noble parents at Aquino near Naples in Italy. At the University of Naples he led a retired life of study and prayer, and continued his charities, giving all he had which was superfluous. He died at Fossa Nuova in 1274, on his way to the General Council of Lyons, to which Pope Gregory X had summoned him.
