Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Gracious and mysterious God, You are the creator and sustainer of all things.  You know all that has been, is, or ever will be.  As you held a young Patrick in your protection as he tended the Irish flocks, hold us in your protection- even when it seems that we are all alone.  As you directed Patrick to leave and be trained for your service, help us to discern and follow your leading.  As  you strengthened the ministry of Patrick, returned to bring Christ to his former captors, help us to be strong in love toward all those we meet.  In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
