On this St. Patrick’s Day, I’m reflecting on the blessings of Christ.

I appreciate this prayer for the day attributed to St Patrick – often known as 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
