About St Matilda:
Matilda, Queen of Germany was born about 895 and grew up in a convent with her grandmother.
St Matilda was known for giving money and food to the poor, building many churches, convents and monasteries. People including her son criticised her for it, but she believed she was doing God’s work.
The Prayer of St Matilda:
Matilda’s House Prayer
Father of Light and Wisdom, thank you for giving me a mind that can know and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life, no matter what the subject may be.
Let me be convinced that all knowledge leads to you and let me know how to find you and love you in all the things you have made.
Encourage me when the studies are difficult and when I am tempted to give up,
Enlighten me when my mind is struggling and help me to grasp the truth.
Grant me the grace to put my knowledge to use in building the kingdom of God on earth so that I may enter the kingdom of God in heaven.
