Take a moment sometime today to consider The Real St. Patrick and invite others to do likewise. Looking for some resources? I’d encourage you to start with several Christianity Today articles. If you have additional suggestions, including books to recommend, please share below.
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.
I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.
— A Poem by St. Patrick, ca 377 AD
PPS. Visit The Trinity in St. Patrick’s Breastplate for a quote from Alister McGrath in which he presents how the ancient Gaelic hymn St. Patrick’s Breastplate tutors worshipers in the important biblical doctrine of the Trinity.
