St. Patrick’s Breastplate (Spoken)

St. Patrick’s Breastplate (Spoken)


I arise today through a mighty strength the invocation of the Trinity Through belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation. I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent with the judgment of doom. I arise today
Through the strength of the love of the cherubim, In the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels, In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward In the prayers of patriarchs, In the predictions of prophets,
In the preaching of apostles, In the faith of confessors,
In the innocence of holy virgins, In the deeds of righteous men. I arise today, through
The strength of heaven, The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon, The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning, The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea, The stability of the earth,
The firmness of rock. I arise today, through
God’s strength to pilot me, God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me, God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me, God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me, God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices, From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near. I summon today
All these powers between me and those evils, Against every cruel and merciless power
that may oppose my 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 witches, smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul; Christ shield me today Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding, so that there may come to me an abundance
of reward. 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 mind that thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man that speaks of me,
Christ in every eye of all who sees me, Christ in every ears of all who hear me. I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation.
