St. Patrick's blessings


I had trouble formatting my post the way I wanted, so I decided to put my prayer and blessing in it's own post.
 This Prayer is taken from St. Patrick's breastplate:
Christ be 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 where I lie
Christ where I sit
Christ where I arise
Christ in the heart of every man
who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me
Christ in every ear that hears me
Salvation is of the Lord.
And I like this little blessing.  I pray it for you.
"May the smile of God light you to glory."
It's kind of hard to find Irish blessing and prayers that don't center around beer! LOL, but I found a nice little page full of them.  Take a look if you like.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.  I hope you are wearing green!  Consider yourself pinched if you aren't.
