Happy Saint Patrick’s Day whereever you are as you read this.
Despite a lot of sadness in our world today with the war in Ukraine, Saint Patrick offers a voice of hope. If anyone knew hardship, difficulty and challenge it was Patrick himself. Our prayer to St Patrick today is a prayer for peace, peace in our world but also in your life too. Have a lovely day whatever your plans are.

Thought on Thursday – March – 17/03/2022
As we head towards St Patrick’s Day tomorrow the following St. Patrick’s Prayer is most appropraite
Christ 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 when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.
We pray for God’s strength to help us,
God’s wisdom to guide us,
God’s eye to be our vision,
God’s ear for our hearing,
God’s word for our speech,
God’s hand to protect us,
God’s pathway before us,
God’s shield for our shelter,
