St. Patrick's Breastplate, also known as The Lorica (the cry of the deer)


St Patrick's Breastplate 5x7 Printable


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 man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears 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.

  1. Hi Gail, this is one of my favorite prayers. I especially like the part "Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me and Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me."
