Get out of yourself
"It’s better to enlighten than to shine, just as it is better to give others the fruits of your contemplation than simply to contemplate," writes St. Thomas Aquinas in his Summa Theologica. Praying and coming out of oneself and going towards the other is where wisdom of the heart resides. It requires leaving aside our frenetic activity or the race to succeed in order to open ourselves to an essential priority: that of gratitude that leads us to God, in response to the gratuitousness of God's absolute gift of Himself. For one of the greatest Catholic thinkers in history, the key to a better life is to place God at the center of our lives.
