IRELAND OF MY HEART

An Irish Prayer to Start the Day

The Breastplate of St. Patrick of Ireland

I arise today

Through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the judgment of Doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me:
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel and merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.

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.

聖帕提克的護心鎧甲 St Patrick’s Breast Plate

今日
我奮袂而起。
我向聖三位一體,我們的上帝祈求,
我的心
憑藉著上帝的大能,
憑藉著堅定的信仰,
憑藉著深刻的告解,
向那唯一的造物主。

今日
我奮袂而起。
基督的誕生與洗禮,
基督的受難與埋葬,
基督的復活與升天,
基督下降陰府與審判,
給予我力量。

今日
我奮袂而起。
智慧天使基路伯(Cherubim)的愛使我堅強。
我在
天使的順服中,
大天使的幫助中,
復活的希望中,
得到報償。
我在
宗主教的祈禱中,
先知的預言中,
告解者的信仰中,
童貞女的潔淨中,
賢德之人的言行中,
得到力量。

今日
我奮袂而起。
天上的國度,使我振奮:
那裡陽光普照,月光四射,光彩奪目。
那裡風速敏捷,光線奔馳,
那裡海深,地穩,岩堅固。

今日
我奮袂而起。
上帝的力量為我領航:
上帝的大能支持我,
上帝的智慧帶領我,
上帝的眼睛嚮導我,
上帝的耳朵傾聽我,
上帝的口舌教導我,
上帝的雙手守護我,
上帝的道路引導我,
上帝的盾甲庇護我,
上帝是我之主,
拯救我遠離惡魔的誘惑,
無論惡魔是單或眾。
上帝是我之主,
拯救我免於敵人的詛咒,
無論敵人是近或遠。

在我與惡魔之間的諸力量,請聽我召喚。
讓我們共同
對抗假先知的惡毒魔咒,
對抗異教徒的黑邪律法,
對抗外道人士的異端邪說,
對抗偶像崇拜者的狡詐騙術,
對抗巫術法師的法術詛咒。
請助我擊敗
一切腐化人類肉體與靈魂的邪見,
一切加害於我身心的殘酷力量。

今日,基督庇護我,
使我免於毒害與猛火,
使我免於淹溺與迫害,
終有一天,我將獲得無盡的報償。

基督與我同在,或在前,或在後。
基督與我同體,或在下,或在上。
基督在我身旁,或在左,或在右。
行住坐臥之時,皆不須臾離也。
思我者,基督必存其心。
談我者,基督必存其口。
見我者,基督必存其目。
聞我者,基督必存其耳。

今日
我奮袂而起。
我向聖三位一體,我們的上帝祈求,
我的心
憑藉著上帝的大能,
憑藉著堅定的信仰,
憑藉著深刻的告解,
向那唯一的造物主。
