Aquinas for May XXX

Christus promittit et donat spiritualia; et ut ostendat contemnenda temporalia, et speranda aeterna, noluit temporalem liberationem secundum rationem, et tamen aliqui in novo testamento sunt temporalibus liberationibus liberati, et in veteri testamento aliqui sunt spiritualibus afflictionibus eruditi, ut ostendatur Deus auctor esse utriusque testamenti.

"Christ promises and gives spiritual things; and in order to show that temporal things are to be scorned and eternal things are to be hoped for, he does not will temporal liberation according to reason, although some in the new testament are liberated by temporal liberation and in the old testament some are taught by spiritual afflications, in order to show that God is the author of both testaments."

Super Psalmo 21 n. 4
