St. Thomas Aquinas, My Model for Purity and Chastity

Chosen Lily of Innocence, pure St. Thomas, who kept chase the robe of Baptism and became an angel in the flesh after being girded by two angels, I implore you to commend me to Jesus, the Spotless Lamb, and to Mary, Queen of Virgins. Gentle protector of my purity, ask them that I, who wear the holy sign of your victory over the flesh, may also share your purity, and that after imitating you on earth, I may at least come to be crowned with you among the angels. Amen. #0524,

Dear Saint Thomas, gentlest of saints, you loved Jesus so tenderly and wrote so well of Him, that He made you the glory of the church and a shining star in the order of St. Dominic. Encouraged by your kindness and charity, I beg you to obtain this favor I now ask….(make your request now, and say not my will, but Thine will be done) Plead my cause with your beloved Jesus so that I may serve Him faithfully in this life and enjoy Him forever in heaven. Amen. #2112. The St. Martin de Porres Lay Dominican Community, New Hope, KY 40052. S. Tommaso d’Aquino, O.P by del Guercino (1592-1666).
