We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Jesus told us that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that is what St. Patrick spread around Ireland – the joy of Jesus all around us!
Let us pray the prayer called St. Patrick's Breastplate for confidence:
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 every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
