For the spiritual soul of Ireland which enriches our faith
We give thanks

For the beauty of Ireland – its green hills and misty alleys
We give thanks

For the Irish sense of fun: the jokes and the banter
We give thanks

For the music, art and literature of Ireland which inspires and uplifts
We give thanks

For the saints and mystics, spiritual guides and founders
St Kevin, St Patrick, St Brigid, Nano Nagle, Catherine McAuley, Edmund Rice, Mary Aikenhead
We give thanks

God bless you on this St Patrick’s Day
Today may you know love
May you know happiness
May you know peace.

(Blessing from Richardson: 2016)
