Catholic Prayer: Prayer to the Angel of Schools
Here is a traditional prayer to Saint Thomas, the Angel of Schools, which students ought to pray before undertaking their studies and teachers ought to use before presenting a class.
Angel of Schools, at the bidding of Peter, Thousands today are saluting thee thus. We too are claiming thy care and thy counsel, Angel of Schools, be an Angel to us. Come to our aid when thou hearest us calling, Light up the dark, make the rough places plain, Bring to our thoughts the unknown or forgotten, Give us the words that we seek for in vain.
