Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! It was fun to make some shamrock shaped cookies, cover them in green colouring icing and share them with my co-workers and friends here. And to share the story of who Saint Patrick is and how he loved God.

Two of my favourite Saint Patrick's resources are this short Veggie Tales video that is surprisingly accurate and this article that talks about the challenge Saint Patrick's life should give us.

May we all, like Saint Patrick, follow the call of God on our lives and share the Gospel with those around us in a way they can understand.

The Prayer of Saint Patrick
As I arise today,
may the strength of God pilot me,
the power of God uphold me,
the wisdom of God guide me.
May the eye of God look before me,
the ear of God hear me,
the word of God speak for me.
May the hand of God protect me,
the way of God lie before me,
the shield of God defend me,
the host of God save me.
May Christ shield me today.
Christ 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 when I lie down, Christ when I sit,
Christ when I stand,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
