Catholic Apologist's Daily Prayer
Ineffable Creator, who from the
treasures of your wisdom, have established three
hierarchies of angels, have arrayed them in marvelous
order above the fiery Heavens, and have marshaled
the regions of the universe with such artful skill,
You are proclaimed the True Font of Light and Wisdom,
and the primal origin raised high beyond all things.
Pour forth a ray of your brightness
into the darkened places of my mind; disperse from
my soul the twofold darkness into which I was born:
sin and ignorance. You make eloquent the tongues of
infants. Refine my speech, and pour forth upon my lips
the goodness of your blessings. Grant to me keenness
of mind, capacity to remember, skill in learning, subtlety
to interpret and eloquence in speech.
May you guide the beginning of my
work, direct its progress, and bring it to completion.
You who are True God and True Man, who live and reign
world without end.
- St. Thomas Aquinas
