‘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 and in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me'
Prayer of St.Patrick
God is close and near to us, not just occasionally but every moment of every single day. St.Patrick proudly shared this good news with so many Irish people. Like St.Patrick we need to concentrate more on the good news around us and much less on all the negative stuff.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
‘On Ya’ - ma
