My dear friends in Christ,
I have just completed the first week of the spring semester at the university where I teach and I felt compelled to re-publish a previous post of mine regarding the upcoming celebratory day in which we honor St. Thomas Aquinas, one of our patron saints of universities, teachers, and education. I pray that he and all the saints intercede to our Lord to help me and all educators in our efforts and endeavors of our vocation to educate and help His children here on earth.
January 28th - Feast Day of St. Thomas Aquinas
St Thomas Aquinas: Prayer for Guidance
O creator past all telling,
You we call the true fount of wisdom and the noble origin of all things.
You make eloquent the tongues of children.
Guide my going in and going forward,
Take from me the double darkness in which I have been born,
Give me a keen understanding,a retentive memory,
Grant me the talent of being exact in my explanations
Point out the beginning,direct the progress,and help in the completion.
I ask this through Christ our Lord.
