Knowing How to be Happy: Prudence in the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas


The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.


La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d’Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell’Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall’Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.

How do we know what to do to in order to find lasting happiness? If today we sometimes equate prudence with caution or timidity, to Aquinas, prudence is the virtue by which we may attain to greater personal fulfillment and true freedom. To see prudence from his perspective more fully, we need to enter into his view of the world, God, man and virtue. Then, we too may appreciate the importance of prudence for happiness in our lives as he did!

Sister Mary Christa Nutt is a member of the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan.  She is currently serving on the General Council of her Institute and as the local superior in Alma, MI, where she also teaches Thomistic philosophy and theology to the postulants and novices.
