Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!
Whether or not you have any connection to the
Irish-ness so many people around the world celebrate
today, I invite you to step into the wisdom of one of
St. Patrick’s greatest insights: that the Otherworld
is all around us and that the Divine pulses in and through
every particle of your being.
I was fortunate to dip into that reality in a spectacular
way earlier this month, when I participated
in the Celtic Soul Experience with Irish brothers and singers
Owen and Moley O’Suilleabhain
and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
I’m still integrating the wonder and joy of those days
so I decided that the best way to share a bit of the magic
with you would be to create a short slide show of
photos from the weekend, set to one of Owen and Moley’s songs. If
you’d like to get a taste of our time together,
you can watch that right here (it takes a few moments to load):

I hope you enjoy it! If you want to read about Owen and Moley, or hear more of their music, their website is:
The Celtic Soul Experience was part of the
Together in Faith Series created by the
Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. You
can see what else the Sisters are offering this
Finally, here’s an adapted
version of St. Patrick’s prayer for you, which I sometimes
say with my morning meditation and prayers:
Christ* before me, Christ behind me, Christ under my feet…
Christ within me, Christ over me, let all around me be Christ…
Christ in every thought, word and deed…
Christ in every wave and every particle….
Christ in every heartbeat and breath.
Christ be in the space between me and everyone I encounter today.
Christ on the lips of those who speak of me, the
minds of those who think of me, the hearts of those
who feel about me. Christ in my blood and bone,
Christ in every cell and wave and particle and in
the space around me. Christ guide me, inspire
me, protect me and encourage me, Christ be with me,
today and always, in all ways.
(*Note: use whatever word you like to represent the aspect of
Divinity you wish to invoke with this prayer).
I invite you to create a similar prayer for yourself
to remind you that the Divine is with you always,
in all ways…in fact, YOU are a spark of Divinity.
You are an expression of Essence.
You are a manifestation of the All that Is.
May the wonder of that knowingness
rise up inside you today
and fill your heart with love
