We pray God’s blessing this day on all the people of our parish, on Ireland, and on the many millions throughout the world who join with us in our national day of celebration. We think especially of all our people who are exiles far from home: may the Christian faith of St. Patrick be their support and comfort always. We pray also for the many people who have come into this country in recent years seeking shelter, asylum and a new life. May our welcome to them be generous and kind. St. Patrick, protect us all on the journey of life.
St. Patrick’s Breastplate: 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 sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me. Amen.
