In preparation for the celebration of the Feast day of our Parish Patron saint let us pray every day the prayer below from Tuesday January 19 – 28.
PRAYER OF ST. THOMAS AQUINAS
Almighty and ever-living God, I approach the sacrament of Your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ. I come sick to the doctor of life, unclean to the fountain of mercy, blind to the radiance of eternal light, and poor and needy to the Lord of heaven and earth.
Lord, in your great generosity, heal my sickness, wash away my defilement, enlighten my blindness, enrich my poverty, and clothe my nakedness. May I receive the bread of angels, with humble reverence, with the purity and faith, the repentance and love, and the determined purpose that will help to bring me to salvation. May I one day see him face to face in glory, who lives and reigns with You forever. Amen.
