 Our Description

This beautiful laminated holy card pictures St. Patrick as Bishop of Ireland driving the snakes out of ireland.  On the back is his 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 ear to hear me.
God's word to speak for 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 in 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.

    Kidnapped from the British mainland around age 16, and shipped to Ireland as a slave. Sent to the mountains as a shepherd, he spent his time in the field in prayer. After six years of this life, he had a dream in which he was commanded to return to Britain; seeing it as a sign, he escaped. He studied in several monasteries in Europe. Ordained a priest and then a bishop. Sent by Pope Celestine to evangelize England, then Ireland, during which his chariot driver was Saint Odran, and Saint Jarlath was one of his spiritual students. In 33 years he effectively converted the Ireland. In the Middle Ages Ireland became known as the Land of Saints, and during the Dark Ages its monasteries were the great repositories of learning in Europe, all a consequence of Patrick’s ministry.
