No coincidences in California...
Back in early December 2017, a fire broke out in Southern California which became the biggest fire in California history. It was called the "Thomas" Fire. Why?
"The Thomas Fire started in Santa Paula, Ventura County on December 4th. The blaze ignited near Thomas Aquinas College, a small, Catholic-affiliated liberal arts college. The fire was named after its proximity to the school." (Source)Today, that same area has been hit by pounding rain which caused the now denuded hillsides to pour mud down on places that had been spared the ravages of the fire. Right now the count is 13 dead and it could go higher. Take note of one particular victim.
The founder of St. Augustine Academy in Ventura was among those killed early Tuesday when a powerful mudslide swept him and his wife from their Montecito home.
Roy Rohter was identified by officials at Thomas Aquinas College, from which his daughter graduated in 2000. His wife, Theresa, was rescued and is in stable condition, officials said.
Friends remembered Rohter as an energetic leader and generous benefactor of the college.
"Roy Rohter was a man of strong faith and a great friend of Catholic education," Michael F. McLean, president of the college, said in a statement posted on the school's website.
"He played a pivotal role in the lives of countless young Catholic students — students who came to a deeper knowledge and love of Christ because of his vision, commitment and generosity."
Michael Van Hecke, headmaster of St. Augustine, said in a statement that Rohter "has done so much for so many people and pro-life and Catholic education causes. … Thousands have been blessed by the Rohters' friendship and generosity." (Source)Who was Thomas Aquinas?
Saint Thomas Aquinas ... (1225 – 1274) was an Italian Dominican friar, Catholic priest, and Doctor of the Church. He was an immensely influential philosopher, theologian, and jurist in the tradition of scholasticism, within which he is also known as the Doctor Angelicus and the Doctor Communis.
...His influence on Western thought is considerable, and much of modern philosophy developed or opposed his ideas, particularly in the areas of ethics, natural law, metaphysics, and political theory. Unlike many currents in the Church of the time, Thomas embraced several ideas put forward by Aristotle—whom he called "the Philosopher"—and attempted to synthesize Aristotelian philosophy with the principles of Christianity.
...The Catholic Church honors Thomas Aquinas as a saint and regards him as the model teacher for those studying for the priesthood,.... In modern times, under papal directives, the study of his works was long used as a core of the required program of study for those seeking ordination as priests or deacons,....
...Thomas Aquinas is considered one of the Catholic Church's greatest theologians and philosophers. Pope Benedict XV declared: "This (Dominican) Order ... acquired new luster when the Church declared the teaching of Thomas to be her own and that Doctor, honored with the special praises of the Pontiffs, the master and patron of Catholic schools." The English philosopher Anthony Kenny considers Thomas to be "one of the dozen greatest philosophers of the western world".

Most deaths were believed to have occurred in Montecito, a wealthy enclave of about 9,000 people northwest of Los Angeles that is home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe and Ellen DeGeneres, said Santa Barbara County spokesman David Villalobos. (Source)
