Saint Patrick was known for his tremendous sense of gratitude. When things went well, and when they didn’t, Saint Patrick was always certain that God was in control of the situation. This strong faith in God’s providential love and care enabled him to live a remarkable life in service to the Gospel. He is revered by many as the Apostle of Ireland.
The Prayer of St. Patrick
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, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
