A prayer

Grant to me keenness of mind,
Capacity to remember,
Skill in learning, subtlety to interpret,
And eloquence of speech.
May you guide the beginning of my work,
Direct its progress,
And bring it to completion.

from a prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas, Ante Studium ("Before Study")
quoted in Kevin Vost's Memorize the Faith

Not a bad prayer for Catholic bloggers, either!
