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
