Prayer for Students

By Saint Thomas Aquinas   
O Mary, Mother of enchanting love, of fear, of knowledge, of holy hope, through Whose pious intercession many make admirable progress in studies and piety despite crudeness of understanding, I choose Thee as protectress and patroness of my studies.

Humbly I implore Thee that, from the heart of Thy maternal pity, and principally from the Eternal Wisdom that deigned to take on our flesh in Thee, and that exalted Thee in heavenly light above all the saints, Thou obtain grace from the Holy Ghost for me so that I might be able to penetrate with my understanding, retain in my memory, express by my life and words, and teach to others all that brings honor to Thee and Thy divine Son, likewise to the advantage of my eternal joy and that of all men. So be it.

O Blessed Thomas, Patron of Schools,
Obtain for us from God
An Invincible Faith,
A Burning Charity,
A Chaste Life,
And True Knowledge
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

I'm cramming in every last minute of study time before my toughest final exam and finally took a little break. I saw one of my friends had posted this website on facebook and decided to check it out. It was very helpful! Thanks!

I know 2 brothers who've been fooled into believing that homosexuality, alcohol & drugs, and putting their catholic faith aside is acceptable. Somebody out there please pray for them...I don't know if my prayers alone are enough.

Please always protect, and keep safe my nephews: Sean, Jim, Brain, and my neice: Michelle from all the evil and bad that is being taught today in the schools across America. Please let them all have the good teachers who believe in God, and in prolife. Please let them have a good, God-based education throughout their school years. I ask this all in Jesus' most holy name, through our Mother Mary, Holy Mary Mother of God, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Benedict, in union with good St. Joseph. Amen. Thank you. Kathy

I have a grand daughter who does not want to finish her high schooling, we tried to get her into a school that will help, but she will not sign up. Please pray for her and all those who are just like her.
