MESSAGE FROM FR KIERAN – Sunday 17th March

This Sunday we celebrate St. Patrick as the patron saint of Ireland. We acknowledge the dedication and commitment of St. Patrick in spreading the Christian faith throughout our country. We celebrate too our cultural heritage as Irish people and we mark it with parades and pageants held throughout the country.

As we continue our Lenten season preparing for Easter, we can look for inspiration to the prayer of St. Patrick who desired that Christ would be with him in every way and in all things.

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 when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

Fr. Kieran Coghlan
