Prayers to Saint Patrick


Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, snakes and engineers. He was said to have banished all the snakes from Ireland. We pray to him for his intercession in our lives. 


Hail, Glorious St. Patrick

Hail, glorious St. Patrick!
we, honor your name,
Tho' Erin may claim you,
the world knows your fame.
The faith of our fathers is our
treasure too,
How holy the thought,
that they learned it from you.
Thru crosses and trials its fires
burn bright,
They show us the way,
and the truth, and the light,
Great Saint!
Intercede, that we always may be
devoted and loyal,
true children of yours.
Our love and devotion
be ever like yours,
Our thought be of Jesus,
our heart be His shrine.
And when to the end of life's path
we have trod,
Be near us great Bishop,
Anointed of God.

An Irish Blessing

May the road
rise to meet
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.

St. Patrick's Breastplate

I arise today through
God's strength to pilot me,
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to see before me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to secure me ---
           against snares of devils,
           against temptations and vices,
           against inclinations of nature,
           against everyone who shall wish me ill,
           afar and anear, alone and in a crowd...
Christ, be 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 where I lie. Christ where I sit.
           Christ where I arise.
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me.
Christ is the mouth of every man who speaks of me.
Christ in every eye that sees me.
Christ in every ear that hears me.
           Salvation is of the Lord.
           Salvation is of the Lord.
           Salvation is of the Christ.
May your salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.

An Old Irish Benediction

May God sleep
on your pillow
May he hold you
in the hollow of his hand,
May the roads
rise with you,
fair weather to your heels,
May the wind be ever
at your back,
and may you be
a long time in heaven,
before the devil
knows you're gone.

O great Apostle of Ireland, glorious
St. Patrick, to whom under God, so
many are indebted for the most 
precious of all treasures, the great gift 
of Faith, receive our fervent thanks 
for the zeal and charity which have
been to thousands the source of
blessings so invaluable. Ask for all
who dwell in this land and the land of
thy labors, the precious light of Faith,
and beg for us on whom its glorious
rays have long since beamed, the grace
to regulate our lives by its sacred maxims.
