Today we honor one of Ireland's most beloved patron saints and apostles - Saint Patrick. His Breastplate Prayer is a Christian hymn containing old Irish lyrics. He was influenced by the protective petition needed on his missionary journey before successfully converting the Irish King Laoghaire and his subjects from paganism to Christianity. It is written in the style of a druidic incantation and the words were translated into English by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1889. May these beautiful words resonate in your heart and inspire you to wear your breastplate of protection daily.
