Benedict Ashley on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Benedict M. Ashley, OPThomist moral theologians lament all the time that some of the deeply religious features of Aquinas’s doctrine are left out in the cold when discussions of his moral teaching take place, and that is surely true of his treatment of the gifts of the holy spirit.

While putzing around the Dominican Central web site, and looking up the page devoted to Benedict Ashley, OP, I came across this handy article on Thomas’s teaching regarding the gifts of the holy spirit. Perhaps you’ll find it interesting and helpful.
