A Lawyer’s Prayer to St. Thomas More:
Thomas More, counselor of law and statesman of integrity, merry martyr and most human of saints:
Pray that, for the glory of God and in the pursuit of His justice,
I may be trustworthy with confidences, keen in study, accurate in analysis,
correct in conclusion, able in argument, loyal to clients, honest with all,courteous to adversaries, ever attentive to conscience.
Sit with me at my desk and listen with me to my clients’ tales.
Read with me in my library and stand always beside me so that
today I shall not, to win a point, lose my soul.
Pray that my family may find in me what yours found in you:
friendship and courage, cheerfulness and charity, diligence in duties,
counsel in adversity, patience in pain—their good servant, and God’s first.
