Pints With Aquinas

If you could sit down with St. Thomas Aquinas over a pint of beer and ask him any one question, what would it be? Every episode of Pints With Aquinas revolves around a question, a question that St. Thomas addresses in his most famous work, The Summa Theologica. So get your geek on, pull up a bar stool, and grab a cold one. Here we go!

Today, I'm joined around the bar table by my good friend and Catholic Answers' apologist Jimmy Akin to talk about what Aquinas had to say about the Occult. (Cue spooky music).

Wow, Aquinas has a LOT to say about this topic.

Here are just a few of the things you'll learn about during my conversation with Jimmy:

- What Aquinas had to say about Psychic Powers

- Werewolves

- Crystal Healing

- Astrology

- Ghosts

So, buckle up, turn on all the lights so you don't get scared, and let's talk about the Occult!

In my first talk since our country was shut down by COVID, I address the students at Franciscan University of Steubenville about porn and Aquinas’s remedies for lust and sorrow. 

We tackle:

  •  Aquinas’s underwhelming, yet vitally necessary, remedies for lust
  • Why Aquinas’s remedies for sorrow are essential in the struggle against porn
  • Students’ questions and Aquinas’s answers for beating porn addiction
