St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's prayer for the faithful captures the wonderful spirit that made him Ireland's patron saint and one of the church's most beloved missionaries.
May the Strength of God pilot 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 Host of God guard us.
Against the snares of the evil ones.
Against temptations of the world.

May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all !
May Thy Salvation, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and evermore.
Amen.

I am a day late getting here; dashboard kept hopping all over the place yesterday and I saw this once and could not find it again.
Beautiful prayer and the image of St. Patrick is gorgeous! Reminds me of old holy cards....
Many hugs Audrey....
