A New Semester

Today is the first day of classes at UNF which I am excited about. This will more than likely be my last full semester as I hope to finish this summer. It will be strange not being a student at UNF and I am thankful for the time I have remaining, for the people that I will meet and for what I will learn and unlearn. The following is a Catholic prayer I am praying as the semester begins:

"Incomprehensible Creator, the true Fountain of light and only Author of all knowledge: deign, we beseech Thee, to enlighten our understanding, and to remove from us all darkness of sin and ignorance. Thou, who makest eloquent the tongues of those who lack utterance, direct our tongues, and pour on our lips the grace of thy blessing. Give us a diligent and obedient spirit, quickness of apprehension, capacity of retaining, and the powerful assistance of Thy holy grace; that what we hear or learn we may apply to Thy honor and the eternal salvation of our own souls. Amen."
