WEEKLY PRAYER | The Contemplative Writer


A prayer prior to writing or studying from St. Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 1274):


Ineffable Creator,
Who, from the treasures of Your wisdom,
have established 3 hierarchies of angels,
have arrayed them in marvelous order
above the fiery heavens
and have marshaled the regions
of the universe with such artful ability,

You are proclaimed
the accurate font of light and wisdom,
and the primal origin
raised higher above all issues.

Pour forth a ray of Your brightness
into the darkened locations of my thoughts
disperse from my soul
the twofold darkness
into which I was born:
sin and ignorance.
