Celebrating the Feast of Saint Patrick, from the archives...
Breastplate of Saint Patrick
Christ shield me this day
Christ be with me,
Christ within me
Christ behind me,
Christ before me
Christ beside me,
Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.
Prayer of Saint Patrick for the Faithful
May the Strength of God guide us.
May the Power of God preserve us.
May the Wisdom of God instruct us.
May the Hand of God protect us.
May the Way of God direct us.
May the Shield of God defend us.
May the Angels of God guard us, Against the snares of the evil one.
May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Grace, Lord, Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and forevermore.
Saint Patrick pray for us.
