Saint Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225, Roccasecca, Kingdom on Sicily, and died on the 7th of March 1274, Fossanova, Papal States at about 48 to 49 years of age. He was a Catholic Priest and was known as the ‘Doctor of the Church’. He was thought to be the church’s best out of all its philosophers and theologians.

Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:12 – 13)
