“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 every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.”
~ a prayer of St. Patrick
My thanks to Nan McCullough for sharing some great ideas to use the life of St. Patrick as a topic today. Nan has ideas how to do this if you have a guest over for dinner.
It’s probably too late for you to invite someone over and plan that all out if you are reading this on the day I am posting, March 17th. However, take a moment and familiarize yourself with this early missionary.
Are you back? Good. Now prayerfully be prepared to talk about St. Patrick, leading in to a conversation about Jesus. Write a comment here to let us know who you were able to talk to.
- Saint Patrick’s Day has been celebrated more than 1400 years by the Irish. Read more here about missionary work in Ireland today.
