by Saint Thomas Aquinas
Our Lady Seat of Wisdom,
pray for us!
O Mary, Seat of Wisdom, so many persons of common intellect have made through thy intercession admirable progress in their studies.
I hereby choose thee as guardian and patron of my studies. I humbly ask thee to obtain for me the grace of the Holy Spirit, so that from now on I could
- understand more quickly,
- retain more readily, and
- express myself more fluently.
