St. Patrick

 ~ Samuel, because he comes when called ~

"I arise today, through the strength of heaven: 
Light of the sun, radiance of the moon. 
Splendor of fire, speed of lightning, 
Swiftness of wind, depth of sea,
Stability of earth and firmness of rock.
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 for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me.
From the snares of devils, from temptation of vices, 
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and near, alone and in a multitude."
 ~ Saint Patrick ~ 

This beautiful prayer by Saint Patrick was found on Por Amor Al Arte's blog and speaks eloquently, don't you agree? Please, keep us in your prayers.

Blessings ~ God ~ Jesus Christ ~ Holy Spirit ~

Grace and Peace,
Sandra
