Everyday, I get an email in my inbox about the sait of the day. Today of course is St. Patrick.
I won't cut and past the entire thing here but I thought the comment and quote at the end were really good and I wanted to share here with you. The Quote was very familiar to me as those are the words to one of my favorite hyms we sing at church. :c) but I never knew until today where they were from.
Happpy Saint Patrick's Day Everyone!!! ~Bonnie
What distinguishes Patrick is the durability of his efforts. When one considers the state of Ireland when he began his mission work, the vast extent of his labors (all of Ireland) and how the seeds he planted continued to grow and flourish, one can only admire the kind of man Patrick must have been. The holiness of a person is known only by the fruits of his or her work.
“Christ shield me this day: 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 arise, Christ in the heart of every person who thinks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me” (from “The Breastplate of St. Patrick.”)
