March 17 St. Patrick
Part of The St. Patrick Breastplate
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.
To Do:For little children, it is always fun to wear as much green as possible. I often make green pancakes or green oatmeal for breakfast.

For dinner we have the traditional corn beef and cabbage, served with Irish soda bread. Both of these are easy to make. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage-I/Detail.aspx and
Often we have St. Patrick's day an exception to our dessert rule and have some kind of Brownies with Irish Creme Liquor and Ice Cream!
