The ancient Celtic prayer, St. Patrick’s breastplate, is a wonderful witness to how we may invoke Christ’s presence. We have used a shortened version as an affirmative prayer as one of the practices in relation to the Christ-with-me-aspect of Christfulness.
The composer and song writer Rolf Kobbeltvedt Mortensen has made a beautiful music to St. Patrick’s prayer; he has adapted the text a little but in a deep and congenial way.
