Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate. - St. Thomas Aquinas
Guided by the Dominican principle, contemplari et contemplata aliis tradere (to contemplate and to hand on to others the fruits of contemplation), our academic approach is grounded in a life of study, prayer, and service. This service is to society whereby we draw on the wisdom of the ages to address contemporary situations. Here you will find the fruits of our contemplation:
