St. Patrick's Day

From St. Patrick's Breastplate (not written by him!)
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 had a nice comment from someone in Vera Beach and who loves this blog; I knew her in St. Louis as she lived next to my sister. Unfortunately, I cannot publish her comment as my computer seems to reject it. So, dear S.W. do send me an e-mail at as it just happens that I will be in Vero Beach a week from this Saturday, March 26.

Now for our St. Pat's party tonight.
I am jumbling letters of Irish connected words and will see which team can get the most words "unjumbled" in five minutes. Then I will give a prize for the one who can find the most four-letter and five letter words in "shamrock" in two minutes. (I found 23 words but it took longer)
I am preparing a prayer for after dinner with Celtic sources. It should be fun and I will let you know about it.
This blog is supposed to help us reflect spiritually so do take time today to get in touch with the faith you have and pray for the Irish Church which has given us so much but now needs to have our prayer. We are all praying for Japan.

Without deep reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people. See the link below for more info.
