Please pray this beautiful prayer with me from the Breastplate of St. Patrick:
“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”~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~
Funny true story to share with you ...
It was 24 years ago today that I got drunk, my first and only time,
Finally I had to use the bathroom, and when I stood up the room was spinning. I had to lean on chairs to get to the bathroom. My feet felt like that were made of lead.
Aye yi yi,
I have no clue how I made it to and from the bathroom, I'm sure it was obvious, because I remember my hands feeling like lead as I grabbed chairs to steady myself to the bathroom.
Later, I told Rick he did not have to get me drunk, chances are I would have said yes.
Later that same year, Rick decided to become Catholic, and chose St. Patrick as his Confirmation name.
