A Prayer to Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom
~Saint Thomas Aquinas~

O Mary, Seat of Wisdom, so many persons of common intellect have made through your intercession admirable progress in their studies. I hereby choose you as my guardian and patron of my studies. I humbly ask you to obtain for me the grace of the Holy Spirit, so that from now on I can understand more quickly, retain more readily, and express myself more fluently. May the example of my life serve to honor you and your Son, Jesus. 
Amen.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, Pray for us!

"Seat of Wisdom" (or "Throne of Wisdom") is one of many devotional titles for Our Lady. This title refers to her significance as the vessel in which the Holy Child was born. In "Seat of Wisdom” art, Mary is seated on a throne with the Christ Child on her lap. We honor Mary, Seat of Wisdom, with a feast day on June 8. 
Mary’s wisdom is sometimes lost in more endeared forms of devotion to her. We perhaps imagine a soft and gentle mother. This, of course, is true but we must also include her strength and wisdom. The ancient title for Mary is Sedes Sapientiae, “Seat of Wisdom.” This term is a metaphor. Mary is the “seat” of wisdom because she held divine Wisdom, Christ, in her lap as his mother; she is also the seat of wisdom because she knows what it is to hold and love wisdom, to be wise. If we seek to know wisdom, we must sit at her feet as Christ himself did.

This rosary was created to honor Mary as “Seat of Wisdom.”
The color turquoise is symbolic of wisdom. This serene color also symbolizes tranquility, spiritual balance, patience, peacefulness and love; all are qualities of Our Lady. With this in mind, we chose turquoise glass pearls for the main color of this sacred strand. Because we always want to honor Mary as our queen, we chose to add silver and crystal to this rosary. Silver crystal spaces the turquoise and turquoise crystal rondels flank each handmade lampwork Pater. The Paters were chosen for their softness in color and design, especially for the abstract pink rose which lies under the clear glass. Imported from Italy, a Miraculous Medal center and beautifully detailed crucifix complete this limited edition rosary.

Sirach 4:11-19 New Revised Standard Version 

The Rewards of Wisdom
 Wisdom teaches her children and gives help to those who seek her.
 Whoever loves her loves life, and those who seek her from early morning are filled with joy.
 Whoever holds her fast inherits glory, and the Lord blesses the place she enters.
 Those who serve her minister to the Holy One; the Lord loves those who love her.
Those who obey her will judge the nations, and all who listen to her will live secure.
 If they remain faithful, they will inherit her; their descendants will also obtain her.
 For at first she will walk with them on tortuous paths; she will bring fear and dread upon them,
and will torment them by her discipline until she trusts them,
and she will test them with her ordinances.
 Then she will come straight back to them again and gladden them, and will reveal her secrets to them.
 If they go astray she will forsake them, and hand them over to their ruin.
