THE ST. PATRICK YOU NEVER KNEW by Anita McSorley
“Christ shield me this day:
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 arise, Christ in the heart of every person who thinks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me”
— from “The Breastplate of St. Patrick”.
“Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, and may God Bless you.”
