I’m taking a brief break from creative writing to observe the feast day of one of my favorite saints, St Patrick. His is a tale of bravery and compassion. He escaped slavery in his youth, only to return to the Isle of his captors as an adult to share with them the greatest love story of all time. HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!
Prayer for the Faithful
by Saint Patrick
May the Strength of God guide 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 Angels of God guard us.
– Against the snares of the evil one.
May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Grace, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and forevermore.
