#022: Top Five Productivity Tips from Thomas Aquinas [Podcast]

Since today is the feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas (Jan 28), I’m going to share Five Productivity Tips from Thomas Aquinas. This is where philosophy and theology come crashing into your daily life – your marriage, your job, your kids, your budget, your vacation, your tithe, everything.

I actually got this idea from a priest named Father Guillermo Gabriel-Maisonet who called in to today’s podcast. Take a listen:

    Prov 11:27 is correct as you speak but as printed is in error under the heading Proverb of the week.

    Dr Marshall, are you familiar with the book Thomas Aquinas: Spiritual Master by Robert Barron? I had started reading it since yesterday, Jan. 28 was Thomas’ feast day, and there first heard/ read about Saint Thomas’ outburst with regard to the Manicheans.

    Anyway, great saints, great stories. Thank you for all you do in your blog and the New Saint Thomas Institute.

    Dr. Marshall, what about us, who can’t find friends, despite we long for them ? It is almost impossible to find companion, when you are low income, immigrant or have a mental disease. In our family we have all three combined and people do not reach out, they are indifferent, scared or do not take our situation seriously. We suffer from abandonment. How can Church members be salt for those in the painful situation like this? This goes now on for many long years. It is only us showing the interest- no one really does more than polite smile or fast greeting – just from duty. We do suffer from it greatly. Could you kindly consider talking about something what people do not hear often- like how to bring light to lives of people with mental disease and be salt for them, that suffer from its side effects what are poverty and abandonment? There are huge masses of people that will benefit from talk about this.You know, this situation is for us like having leprosy in Jesus days. Thank you, this was very needed information from you and st. Thomas.
