At the end of the school year, turn to a patron of test-taking to calm your nerves and do your best.
Just one verse each day.
Margherita, or Rita, Lotti (1381-1457) is regarded all over world as a patron saint of desperate causes, impossible cases, unhappily married women and even … baseball players! Celebrated on May 22, this saint also offers help to students.
In your company,
I present myself to God,
the wise Creator of the universe,
the light of human mind.
To learn through application in my studies,
I will need attention:
help me focus,
you who were always so collected.
the internal peace to tame the passions,
the external calm to avoid intemperance.
I need intuition:
the easy comprehension of essential.
I need to memorize:
help me to remember.
Most of all, help me learn
through my studies about the divine life,
so I can live my time on Earth and in eternity.
For all this Saint Rita,
entrust me to the goodness
of Jesus and the Holy Virgin.
