St. Patrick Stain Glass, Beautiful Catholic Prayers







St Patrick, Beautiful Catholic Prayers



Lorica of Saint Patrick (modified-we)

We arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

We arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth and His baptism, 
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

We arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In obedience of angels
in Heaven,
In service of archangels for God,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs
before Christ,
In preachings of the apostles to kingdoms,
In faiths of confessors and priests,
In innocence of virgins and children,
In deeds of righteous men and women.

We arise today
Through the strength of heaven 
by the Light of the sun
in the sky,
the Splendor of fire and ash,
the Speed of lightning from the clouds,
the Swiftness of the wind across the plains,
the Depth of the sea from the shores,
the Stability of the earth around the sun,
and the Firmness of the rock in the ground.

We arise today
Through God's strength to pilot us
for ever,
God's might to uphold us
in weakness,
God's wisdom to guide us in thought,
God's eye to look before us in darkness,
God's ear to hear us
in praise,
God's word to speak for us in wisdom,
God's hand to guard us
in peril,
God's way to lie before us by example,
God's shield to protect us from evil,
God's hosts to save us from damnation,
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires us ill,
Afar and a near,
Alone or in a multitude. 

We summon today all these powers between us and evil,
Against every cruel merciless power that opposes our body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.
Christ shield us today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
Against storms and floods and all natural disasters 
that threaten our lives and safety.
So that reward may come to us in abundance.

Christ with us, Christ before us, Christ behind us.
Christ in us, Christ beneath us, Christ above us.
Christ on our right, Christ on our left,
Christ when we lie down, Christ when we sit down.
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of us.
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of us.
Christ in the eye that sees us.
Christ in the ear that hears us.

We 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.


Original St Patrick Breastplate Prayer

StJeseph with Jesus, Beautiful Catholic Prayers
Devotion to
St. Joseph

To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our tribulation, and having implored the help of your most holy spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.

Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood,  and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful Guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; 

O our most mighty protector, be propitious to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness; and, as once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God's Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity;
shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection,
so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously, to die holily, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven.

Complete Prayer to Saint Michael (Long Version)

Divine Child Jesus, Beautiful Catholic Prayers

  Novena to the 
Divine Child Jesus

Divine Child Jesus, we believe in You; We adore You; and we love You; have mercy on us, sinners.

We've come to this Temple in response to your love. We've come in response to your mercy and grace. We are here because You invited us to come before You and to pour out the cares of our hearts to You since You deeply care for each of us.

We remember Your words to the disciples: Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened. Trusting in your infinite goodness and trusting that You always keep your promise, we now ask this intention which we pray in the silence of our hearts...<silently mention the request>...

Thank you, Divine Child Jesus, for listening attentively to our prayers all the time. We hope that You will ask this before Our Heavenly Father. And, if what we ask for may not be good for our salvation and sanctification, we trust that you will grant us instead what we truly need, so that one day we may be with You for all eternity enjoying that ultimate happiness of Heaven.

Divine Child Jesus, bless and protect us.
Divine Child Jesus, bless and lead us.
Divine Child Jesus, bless and provide for us.

All this we ask through the intercession of your Holy Mother, Mary, and in Your powerful and Most Holy Name, Jesus.
