Saint Thomas Aquinas Prayer
- St. Thomas Aquinas,
- patron of students and Catholic schools,
- I thank God for the gifts
- of light and knowledge he bestowed on you,
- which you used to build up the Church in love.
- I thank God, too,
- for the wealth and richness of theological teaching
- you left in your writings.
- Not only were you a great teacher,
- you lived a life of virtue.
- and you made holiness the desire of your heart.
- If I cannot imitate you
- in the brilliance of your academic pursuits,
- I can follow you in the humility and charity which marked your life.
- As St. Paul said,
- charity is the greatest gift,
- and it is open to all.
- Pray for me that I might grow in holiness and charity.Pray also for Catholic schools,
- and for all students.
- In particular, please pray the growth of the Catholic school here at
- Our Lady of the Lake Parish.
