Erin go Bragh!


From a redhead in a family of redheads, I wish you a very happy St. Patrick's Day!

Along with your soda bread or your shamrock cookies or your corned beef and cabbage, feast on these words from the breastplate of St. Patrick:

Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

Happy St Patrick's Day Richella,
Beautiful words.

Imagine, Richella, that I, whose name means "Ireland" in Irish (what we in the US call Gaelic), had never seen that prayer! It is beautiful; I'm going to add it to my daily ones and teach it to the children. Blessed St. Patrick's Day to you, dear Richella!
