Hey kids! Let's contradicentibus resistendo!
Someone asked me about the tag-line from St. Thomas that's been in the left-hand corner of this blog from its earliest days. It took a little bit of searching, since I'd long since forgotten where I first found it, and the wording I use turns out to be based on a translation of a translation by Josef Pieper. The quotation comes from the conclusion of On the Perfection of the Spiritual Life, a polemical work defending mendicant religious life -- still a new phenomenon during St. Thomas's lifetime -- as a means to perfection.
