Happy St. Patrick’s Day

March 17th is the celebration of St. Patrick’s day.

I wish a happy St. Patrick’s day to all my friends for whom St. Patrick is a spiritual inspiration.

Allow me also to share with you on this happy day a beautiful Celtic blessing.

* * *

May Christ and His Saints stand between you and harm.
Mary and her Son.
Patrick with his staff.
Martin with his mantle.
Brigid with her veil.
Michael with his shield.
And God over all with His strong right hand.

May your past be a pleasant memory,
Your future filled with delight and mystery,
Your now a glorious moment,
That fills your life with deep contentment.

May your day be filled with blessings
Like the sun that lights the sky,
And may you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly!
