This is the continuation and conclusion of the two-part discussion with Dr. Cartagena on Thomas Aquinas’ psychology of fear. We delve a little deeper into fear, perseverance, and courage, as Dr. Cartagena brilliantly ties that all into our current context of resisting oppressive structures, and living during a pandemic. He concludes by giving us a word on Jesus and his emotions: because Jesus experienced the full range of human emotion, including fear and anxiety, it is not sinful for us to be fearful or anxious. In fact, according to Aquinas, being completely fearless doesn’t enable us to love well.
