Wishing all a great St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick was a great bishop who spread the Gospel throughout Ireland and other modern day UK lands.
Unfortunately the lies of atheism, humanism, relativism and other “isms” are attempting to undo the evangelization done by St. Patrick and his successors.
Faith is not total lost in the United Kingdom or Ireland. God still has his modern day Patricks working the fields and tilling the hard soil in order for it to yield prosperous fruit.
Let us pray for Ireland and the UK. May they hold unto their Catholic roots. St. Patrick pray for Ireland and the UK and for all of us.
I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a mulitude.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.
Through the mighty strength
Of the Lord of creation
