St. Thomas Aquinas was the last born of a noble family in 1225 AD in modern day Sicily. As last born he was expected to enter a monastery. Thomas eventually ended up with the Dominican friars which his mother did not approve of. After a long of fighting it and even keeping him locked up for for a year, his mother finally let him go. Thomas was very quiet so people did not take him as a very smart person.  He was, however, an exceptionally bright and well thought out individual. His writings have had immense influence on the Church ever since his time. An entire school of thought stems from his writings and teachings on the faith. Thomas taught at numerous universities throughout Europe and is now widely known as one of the greatest doctors of the Church. He died in the year 1274 and his feast day is celebrated on January 28th. St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of students and universities.
