St. Patrick’s Liturgy

St. Patrick’s Liturgy

Finally Friday? That’s right, some of us feel that way. Wondering why this week might have been so hard? It could have been the DST adjustment. Or it might just be the busyness of the race of life. I am in Davis, now, preparing for The Lucky Run, a St. Patrick’s Day literal 7K race (four miles) with my 83-year-old mother. She and I will be up bright and early tomorrow morning, after months of training, planning, and preparing. As we run, I will be motivated by this portion of St. Patrick’s liturgy. Have a great weekend!

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.

I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same.
The Three in One, and One in Three,
Of Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.
