2) Read Aquinas’s Sermons

 
Randall Smith suggests starting to read Aquinas’s work with his sermons:
A good place to begin for someone who isn’t used to reading medieval disputed questions is to begin with any of Thomas’s “sermon-conferences” on the Apostle’s Creed, the Hail Mary, the Our Father, or the Ten Commandments. All of these were meant for an educated audience of non-specialists. They are not “dumbed down.” Thomas still challenges his listeners to think and think deeply. But they’re less technical than the Summa or Thomas’s commentaries on Aristotle.
 
 
A solid English translation of these sermons is found in the book:
The Aquinas Catechism: A Simple Explanation of the Catholic Faith by the Church’s Greatest Theologian

 

English Translations are also freely available online:
