Prayer for Students

Under thy patronage, dear Mother, 
and calling on the mystery
of thine Immaculate Conception,
I desire to pursue my studies and my literary labors:
I hereby solemnly declare that I am giving myself
to these studies chiefly to the following end:
that I may the better contribute to the glory of God
and to the promotion of thy veneration among men.
I pray thee, therefore, most loving Mother,
who art the Seat of Wisdom, 
to bless my labors in thy loving-kindness.
Moreover I promise with true affection
and a willing spirit,
as it is right that I should do,
to ascribe all the good that shall come to me therefrom,
wholly to thine intercession
for me in God's holy presence.
