Prayers for academia, day 4





O God, fountain of all holiness, you were pleased to enrich your Church with the varied gifts of the saints of the order of Preachers. May we, who honour them in this earthly celebration, follow in their footsteps and so join them at last in the eternal festival of heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
