May Your Blessings Outnumber the Shamrocks (Tuesday)



Where did St. Patrick find the power to not only forgive his former captors, but to devote his life to serving them?



“I arise today
    Through God’s strength to pilot me:
    God’s might to uphold me,
    God’s wisdom to guide me,
    God’s eye to look before me,
    God’s ear to hear me,
    God’s word to speak to me,
    God’s hand to guard me,
    God’s way to lie before me,
    God’s shield to protect me,
    God’s host to save me.”
from The Lorica (St. Patrick’s Breastplate)
5th century

The world has changed since St. Patrick’s time. God hasn’t. Go with God.bless soul pic
