"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 down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man 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."
(From the Breastplate of St. Patrick)
I meant to post yesterday but the festivities of St. Patrick's day in Boston got the better of me (it was my first Boston St. Patrick's Day!). I had pulled up this part of the St. Patrick's prayer yesterday afternoon and repeated it throughout the rest of the day. It was humorous but lovely to see Boston come out in its green and think about Christ partying with the lot. To look around at my friends at dinner, at the people in the restaurant, out in the streets, all around me and think about Christ walking among us. Happy St. Patrick's day Jesus, here's raising my glass to you!
