I heartily recommend this beautiful prayer book, published in parallel Latin-English by Sophia Press, containing the prayers and hymns of St Thomas Aquinas. For us teachers, we can especially say this line from 'A Prayer in Time of Death':

si quid male dixi, totum relinquo correctioni Ecclesiae Romanae

If I have taught anything false, I leave correction of it to the Roman Church.

It has always struck me that as a teacher of religious doctrine in a Catholic school, I am subject to the local bishop, who should take pains that I teach right doctrine. I wonder what procedures exist to ensure this.

The prayer book is nicely produced and very affordable. For English readers, it can be bought here.
