Patriotism: A Supernatural Virtue


St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa Theologiae, Question 58, Article 11 defines justice in this way, “the proper act of justice is nothing else than to render to each one his own.”

Saint Thomas Aquinas states Man is a debtor chiefly to his parents and his country, after God. Wherefore just as it belongs to religion to give worship to God, so it belongs to piety, in the second place, to show reverence to one’s parents and one’s country.”





Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers.” Psalm 122:7


Psalm 33:12
 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!
