The Sacramental Life

St. Patrick’s fabulous prayer, “the Breast Plate,” sums up the sacramental life admirably.


Toward the end, it says

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me,Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ at my right, Christ at my left.

To live the life of the sacraments is always to be running to Christ, and to know that it is Christ himself who has given you the grace to run to him.
