Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas
which he was accustomed to recite every day 
before the image of Christ
Grant me grace, O merciful God, to desire ardently all that is pleasing to Thee, to examine it prudently, to acknowledge it truthfully, and to accomplish it perfectly, for the praise and glory of Thy name. Amen 
(Indulgence of 300 days, Leo XIII.)
