From Prayers
Jump to: navigation, search

Under thy patronage, dear Mother,

and calling on the mystery of thine Immaculate Conception,

I desire to pursue my studies and my literary labours:

I hereby solemnly declare

that I am giving myself to these studies

chiefly to the following end:

that I may the better contribute to the glory of God

and to the promotion of thy veneration among men.

I pray thee, therefore, most loving Mother,

who art the Seat of Wisdom,

to bless my labours in thy loving-kindness.

Moreover I promise with true affection and a willing spirit,

as it is right that I should do,

to ascribe all the good that shall come to me therefrom,

wholly to thine intercession for me

in God’s holy presence.
