I arise today through
God’s strength to pilot me, God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me, God’s eye to see 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 host to secure me –
against snares of devils,
against temptations and vices,
against inclinations of nature,
against everyone who shall wish me
ill, afar and anear,
alone and in a crowd…
Christ, be 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 where I lie, Christ where I sit,
Christ where I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Christ.
May your salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.

May all Irish-Catholic Men and Women today give honor to their patron Saint by living lives of prudence and purity, dedicating themselves to the Lenten Fast and eschewing riotous acts in the streets and byways of our country.

  1. Happy St Patrick’s Day and God Bless 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🍀🍀🍀🍀

  2. Aye! And a blessed Feast to one and all!

    • And a most blessed St Patrick’s Feast Day to you, Patrick. May you have a most holy, happy and healthy year.

      • Merci, zuzu!
        I am in the camp of those who think St. Patrick was from Bretagne in northern France. God reward your charity my friend! Here’s some more shamrocks, just for you and Cindy!

  3. Pray for vocations and for the Church in Ireland and throughout the diaspora. May St. Patrick and the Sacred Heart of Jesus overcome the bitterness and despair of Jansenism, heresy, and apostasy, to return the sons and daughters to the true faith and the love of Our Lord. May our priests once again take up the Cross. And may those faithful servants who do so now in white martyrdom be strengthened in faith and holiness.
