The Best Two Minutes of Your Day

This St. Patrick’s Day is different all across the globe. Neighbors and friends are distancing ourselves from one another in attempts to slow down and reduce the impact of COVID-19, but we can be connected in  different ways. This is a perfect day to listen to an anthem written by a British composer, sung by a German choir of boys and men, in an English translation of a Gaelic prayer found inscribed on the breastplate of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. We live in different places, but we are all one people. May this prayer hymn be balm for our souls and give direction for our daily living.

Click here and give yourself the gift of listening to A Prayer of St. Patrick, by John Rutter.

Christ be with me,
Christ within me,
Christ behind me,
Christ before me,
Christ beside me,
Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me,
Christ above me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ in quiet,
Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
