During the month of October we will be working on the virtue of Studiousness.
All of us are born with the desire to know things. The virtue of studiousness helps us to curb our desire to know things that would lead us away from God and to choose to know the things that bring us closer to God. When we fill our minds with unimportant information or with popular news and gossip, we do not leave room or energy to seek to know truth. Studiousness makes us eager to gain the kind of knowledge that leads us to God.
St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of Catholic schools and of students. He wrote many brilliant books about God which people still use and study today.
