(I am punning on the miraculous preservation of the tongue of St. Anthony of Padua who gave tongue throughout his life to the glory of God.)

Da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere...
Some there are who forsaking virtue, and ignorant of what God is, and of the majesty of that nature which ever remains the same, imagine they are doing something great, if with surpassing curiosity and keenness they explore the whole mass of this body which we call the world. So great a pride is thus begotten, that one would think they dwelt in the very heavens about which they argue.
Augustine, De Morib. Eccl. 21
Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior.
