Saint Patrick’s Lorica for Protection

 From Fr. Rick Heilman in response to the document making its rounds among the witch community [throughout the internet] which is asking people who practice the craft to perform a monthly binding ritual until the president is removed from office.



Saint Patrick’s Lorica for Protection

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.

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

I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The 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 shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near.

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 incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
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 an 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.

Scott Hahn gives awesome Biblical Explanations to some great questions about Catholic teaching.  Why did God change names of Biblical Characters? Why worship on Sunday? Why is eating the Body of Christ in the Eucharist not cannibalism? What difference does it make whether or not we are Catholic? What’s wrong with the “Jesus and me” mindset?

The Eucharist In The Lord’s Prayer


, , , ,

Translation makes a BIG difference, particularly in Sacred Scripture. This article opens up a whole meaning to the Lord’s Prayer that most people don’t know about.

Most folks, when praying the Lord’s Prayer, simply assume that the phrase “our daily bread” is a request for food. At one level, that’s true. But at a more accurate level, we are actually requesting the grace to receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, each day.

Each time we pray the Our Father, we are asking for the Eucharist. And that’s true whether or not we are Catholic Christians.

The word “daily” in “give us this day our daily bread” is the Greek word epiousios. In a certain sense, it’s a difficult word to translate because it’s a brand new word. Before Christ, nobody had used this word. This word is found no where else in Greek literature. Jesus actually coined this word. Perhaps he did so to give this petition special significance. 

“Epi” means highest, above, or superior. As a prefix, this gives us “super-“. Next we have the word “ousios,” which means essence, substance, or nature.
