A Prayer by St Patrick link
@460 link

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven,
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through a might, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
of the Creator of Creation.
Amen

A Prayer of Ambrose (c 339-97) link

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore thee,
a heart to delight in thee,
to follow and to enjoy thee,
for Christ’s sake.
In Jesus name,
Amen

Scripture Reading:  Luke 22:47-53 (NASB Bible Gateway)

Jesus Betrayed by Judas

While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him. But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, “Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him. Then Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as you would against a robber? While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours.”

Be Thou My Vision (Wikipedia)

“Be Thou My Vision” (Old Irish: Rop tú mo baile or Rob tú mo bhoile) is a traditional hymn from Ireland. The most well known English version, with some minor variations, was translated by Eleanor Hull and published in 1912. In 1919, the lyrics were set to the tune of the Irish folk tune “Slane”, to which the song is sung to this day, both in English and Irish.

Traditional Gaelic Blessing (link)

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm 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.

  1. St. Patrick is one of the saints that almost every church holds honor for (outside the biblical ones). Pretty cool.

  2. To my friends here: My mom passed away this morning from heart complications. I think it was really just a broken heart. My dad died January 13th, and she really didn’t want to go on living. But she did have a lot of health problems. My sister had to put her in the hospital on Friday night because she was in bad shape. I had minor foot surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago. I have had a side effect from the surgery that is very painful. I’m going to have my foot put in a cast tomorrow, so I can be able to travel to Missouri on Tuesday morning. So much has to be done, and I don’t want to face it. Plus my sister had to have her oldest dog put to sleep this week. We need your prayers. My sister and her husband and girls and their families especially. Many of the family will be traveling to Missouri from out of state. Several of us from Texas. I did talk to mom yesterday, so I am at peace with that.

  3. @ Harley:
    I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing, Harley as well as the other unfortunate things happening right now. Saying a prayer for you and your family…

    Praying for you, Geva! I’m sorry for your loss!

  5. I so needed to hear those words, Wade. I have been going thru darkness for so long. Your words have helped saved me.
