Prayer Exercise: You are invited to focus on God’s unending and boundless love. Focus your prayer/thoughts on this truth while contemplating images of Celtic knots which are designed with one continuous line. Trace the design with your finger or color in the design.  If your thoughts wander, use this final portion of the Breastplate of Saint Patrick to center you.  Think on God's love, God's power, and  God's faithfulness, going on forever and ever and ever and ever and ever...


The Breastplate of Saint Patrick

Christ with me, Christ before me,

Christ behind me, Christ within me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ at my right, Christ at my left,

Christ in the fort,

Christ in the chariot seat,

Christ in the deck,

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me.

I bind to myself today

The strong virtue of an invocation of the Trinity,

I believe the Trinity in the Unity

The Creator of the Universe.
