Keep asking good questions, I’ll take some time to answer when I get a chance, and I am confident in the others on the board too. While I hope you stick around and continue to ask questions, I’d also like to reccomend http://www.catholicscomehome.org as a good resource.

Here is a prayer composed by St. Thomas Aquinas for those seeking the truth.

O creator past all telling, you have appointed from the treasures of your wisdom the hierarchies of angels, disposing them in wondrous order above the bright heavens, and have so beautifully set out all parts of the universe.

You we call the true fount of wisdom and the noble origin of all things. Be pleased to shed on the darkness of mind in which I was born, The twofold beam of your light and warmth to dispel my ignorance and sin.

You make eloquent the tongues of children. Then instruct my speech and touch my lips with graciousness. Make me keen to understand, quick to learn, able to remember; make me delicate to interpret and ready to speak. Guide my going in and going forward, lead home my going forth.

You are true God and true man, and live forever and ever.

St Thomas Aquinas, 1225-74
