One of our fa­vo­rite an­ec­dotes about Aqui­nas:

It is said that the theologian Tho­mas Aqui­nas…once called on Pope Innocent II when the latter was counting out a large sum of money. The Pope remarked, You see, Tho­mas, the church can no longer say, Silver and gold have I none. Aqui­nas replied, True, holy father, but neither can she now say, Rise and walk.

Fernando, p. 149
