These words of prayer by St. Patrick can inspire us to go forward fully confident in our faith.
I progress on my way
Supported by God’s strength, protected by God’s power,
Guided by God’s wisdom,
Watched over by God’s eye, heeded by God’s ear.
Christ before me and behind me,
Christ above me and below me,
Christ within me and by my side,
Christ around and all about,
Christ to my left and to my right, Christ with me at dawn and still at dusk,
Christ in each heart that thinks of me,
Christ in each look that rests on me, Christ in each ear that hears me. Amen.
