Default St Thomas Aquinas

I really enjoyed the Catholic Answers Radio programme of 30 April: The Perennial Impact of Thomas Aquinas with guest Fr Michael Sweeney OP.

During the programme Fr Michael was asked a question about differing translations of The Summa and fr said that the translation which most people have, done by a group of Dominican students, is not the best. The day before I had read a book review from the Homiletic and Pastoral Review by Fr Kenneth Baker SJ editor emeritus of HPR which dealt with a new translation of the Summa:
TREATISE ON HUMAN NATURE: The Complete Text (Summa Theologiae I, Questions 75-102). By St. Thomas Aquinas; translated by Alfred J. Freddoso (St. Augustine’s Press, South Bend, IN 47780, 2011), 351 pp. PB $20.00.

The Treatise on Law (Prima Secundae, Questions 90-108) was the first part of this new translation to appear in print. The goal is to have the whole Summa available in this new English translation by 2013.
If you were accused of being a Catholic would there be enough evidence to convict you?

I have the treatise on human nature and I find it to be a good one. I'm looking forward to the rest(after law) becoming available
“Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction....There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him."
