Prayers Before and After Reading a Book
When You Take Up A Book
Oh fountain of all light, vouchsafe, I beseech thee, to enlighten my understanding; give me a diligent and docile spirit, and an efficacious desire to apply whatever I read to the glory of God, the sanctification of my soul, and the salvation of others.
Oh my God, foster the divine seed which thou hast sown in my soul.
Grant Oh my Jesus, that like thy Blessed Mother, I may keep all thy words, pondering them in my heart.
