Oil Dedicated to St Benedict
Dear St. Benedict,
In the halls of learning where we, the school children, embark on the journey of knowledge, we seek your benevolent presence as our patron. Guide us in our studies, we pray, so that our minds may be open to understanding and our hearts receptive to wisdom. Like you, who valued the pursuit of knowledge, help us to approach each lesson with diligence and enthusiasm.
As we face the challenges and joys of the academic path, we ask for your intercession, St. Benedict. Be with us in moments of uncertainty, offering the steadiness of your spirit to help us overcome obstacles. May we, under your watchful care, thrive in our education, grow in virtue, and find joy in the pursuit of truth.
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
St Benedict is dedicated to the founder of the monastic tradition.
