@Patty phil,
Hey!

Yes I studied Thomistic Philosophy for three years and I continue to study him! I find his wording to be a challenge, but with experience it can become easier to understand. I know it may sound strange - in the sense that Aquinas is difficult to understand - but an author by the name described Aquinas' philosophy as the "philosophy of common-sense."

For instance, "The materialist disects the apple, looking for its purpose and meaning. Meanwhile the man of common-sense eats the apple."

@Thomistic,
Edward Feser's Aquinas is a good book for anyone trying to understand the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. It's cheap and it explains the concepts in words you can understand.
