Prayer: Thomas Aquinas

Almighty and ever-living God, I approach the sacrament of your only begotten 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 life, and poor and needy to the Lord of heaven and earth. Lord, in your great generosity, heal my sickness, wash away my sins, enlighten my blindness, enrich my poverty, and clothe my nakedness.


  1. What an insightful expression of the way in which we approach our Lord. I am studying Aquinas in one of my courses and have such a respect for his faith and his incredible mind. Blessings.

    1. It is a great way to realize the many ways our Lord can help us. I like Aquinas' humility.
