Blessings for St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I prepared this post before Covid-19 took the world by storm and I was thinking I’d be in Texas, so it may seem a little too lighthearted for the mood of our world, but then it occurred to me that we all we could all use a little cheer. Also, I’ve been sick with a wretched cold/flu (thankfully, probably not Covid-19), so I don’t have quite the umph to prepare a serious blog, although my hope is to begin sharing soon some ideas for what to do while we’re all confined. However, today I am praying over each of you who reads this some of these sweet blessings!


“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace” (Numbers 6:24-26).

One thought on “Blessings for St. Patrick’s Day

  1. From my friend, Lisa: I read the prayer of Saint Patrick on St. Patrick’s Day, which seems so timely!

    May the Strength of God pilot us.

    May the Power of God preserve us.

    May the Wisdom of God instruct us.

    May the Hand of God protect us.

    May the Way of God direct us.

    May the Shield of God defend us.

    May the Host of God guard us

    Against the snares of the evil ones,

    Against temptations of the world.

    May Christ be with us!

    May Christ be before us!

    May Christ be in us,

    Christ be over all!

    May Thy Salvation, Lord,

    Always be ours,

    This day, O Lord, and evermore. Amen.
