Bulletin:  My Commentary on Thomas

Aquinas’s Treatise on Law is back in stock.

Considering what a fetish people make these days of being able to do what they want, it’s amazing how helpless they think they are.

“I know he’s bad for me, but what can I do?  I’m in love.”  The best thing is not to get into that situation in the first place.  “But I can’t help who I fall in love with.”  Of course you can.

People fall in love with people they spend time with.  So don’t associate with persons who are bad for you and then be surprised when you fall in love.  Instead, associate with persons who are good for you.  You will eventually fall in love with one of them.

Here’s the catch.  The sort of person who can be good for you is the sort who is good for other people in general.  To attract that kind of person, you have to be one.  In fact, even to be attracted to that kind of person, you have to be one.

Becoming that kind of person takes a long time.  So don’t wait until you meet one.  Get started now.
