    Hymn at the Lighting of the Paschal Candle

    Fiery creator of fire,
    light giver of light,
    life and author of life,
    salvation and bestower of salvation,
    in case the lamps should abandon
    the joys of this night,
    you who do not desire our death,
    give light to our breast.

    To those wandering from Egypt,
    you bestow the double grace,
    you show the veil of cloud,
    and give the nocturnal light.
    with a pillar of cloud in the day,
    you protect the people as they go,
    with a pillar of fire at evening,
    you dispel the night with light.

    You call out to your servant from the flame,
    you do not spurn the bush of thorns,
    and though you are consuming fire,
    you do not burn what you illumine.
    Now it is time that the cloudy bee-bread
    should be consumed, all impurity boiled away, and the waxen flesh should shine
    with the glow of the Holy Spirit.

    You store now in the recesses of the comb the sweet food of the divine honey,
    and purifying the inmost cells of the heart,
    you have filled them with your word;
    that the swarm of the new brood,
    chosen by your mouth and spirit,
    may leave their burdens and win heaven
    on wings now free from care.


    May Your Holy Angels

    May your holy angels, O Christ Jesus, Son of the living God,
    tend our sleep, our rest, our bright bed.
    Let them reveal true visions to us in our sleep, O high prince of the universe, O great and mysterious king.
    May no demons, no injury or terrifying dreams disturb our rest, our prompt and swift repose.
    May our waking, our work, and our living be holy; our sleep, our rest, without hindrance or harm.


    O God, Lord of Creation

    O God, Lord of Creation, I invoke you. You are my gracious counselor. Do not turn your face toward me, for you are my judgement without betrayal.

    You are my king. You are my law. Yours is my flesh, my body. I love you, blessed Christ, for my soul is yours tonight.

    Let me not conceal it, O King. May I be in your royal dwelling all my days. Do not leave me behind, O God.


    Excerpt from the Broom of Devotion

    O holy Jesus,
    gentle friend,
    morning star,
    midday sun adorned,
    brilliant flame of righteousness, life everlasting and eternity,
    fountain ever-new, ever-living, ever-lasting,
    heart’s desire of patriarchs,
    longing of prophets,
    master of apostles and disciples,
    giver of the law,
    prince of the new testament,
    Saviour of the saved,
    Judge of doom,
    Son of the merciful Father without mother in heaven,
    Son of the true virgin Mary, without father on earth,
    true and loving brother


    Poem to the Virgin Mary - Welsh Poems

    Blessed virgin who bore God and took care of him with tender love,
    Bright, with goodness full,
    Mary miracle, the lion’s precious love,
    Virgin once, and virgin still

    St. Francis, The Our Father

    O OUR most holy FATHER,
    Our Creator, Redeemer, Consoler, and Savior
    WHO ARE IN HEAVEN:
    In the angels and in the saints,
    Enlightening them to love, because You, Lord, are light
    Inflaming them to love, because You, Lord, are love
    Indwelling and filling them with happiness, because You, Lord, are the Supreme Good,
    the Eternal Good
    from Whom comes all good
    without Whom there is no good.
    HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME:
    Mav our knowledge of You become ever clearer that we may know the breadth of Your blessings
    the length of Your promises
    the height of Your majesty
    the depth of Your judgments.
    YOUR KINGDOM COME:
    So that You may rule in us through Your grace
    and enable us to come to Your kingdom
    where there is an unclouded vision of You
    a perfect love of You
    a blessed companionship with You
    an eternal enjoyment of You.
    YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN
    HEAVEN:
    That we may love You with our whole heart by always thinking
    of You
    with our whole soul by always desiring You
    with our whole mind by directing all our
    intentions to You and by seeking Your
    glory in everything
    and with our whole strength by spending all our energies and affections
    of soul and body
    in the service of Your love
    and of nothing else
    and may we love our neighbors as ourselves
    by drawing them all with our whole strength to Your love
    by rejoicing in the good fortunes of others as well as our
    own
    and by sympathizing with the misfortunes of others
    and by giving offense to no one.
    GIVE US THIS DAY:
    in memory and understanding and reverence
    of the love which our Lord Jesus Christ had for us
    and of those things which He said and did and suffered for us.
    OUR DAILY BREAD:
    Your own Beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
    AND FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES:
    Through Your ineffable mercy
    through the power of the Passion of Your Beloved Son together with the merits and intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and all Your chosen ones.
    AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST
    US:
    And whatever we do not forgive perfectly, do you, Lord, enable us to forgive to the full so that we may truly love our enemies and fervently intercede for them before You returning no one evil for evil
    and striving to help everyone in You.
    AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION
    Hidden or obvious
    Sudden or persistent.
    BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL
    Past, present and to come.
    Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
    As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

  • Celtic Prayers of the Church in Ireland with Patrons St. Patrick and St. Columbanus and St. Columbkille



    COMMUNION HYMN


    Come, you holy ones, receive the body of Christ,

    Drinking the holy blood by which you were redeemed.

    You who are saved by the body and blood of Christ,

    Let us praise God, by whom we are made anew.

    By this sacrament of the body and blood,

    All have escaped from the jaws of hell.

    Giver of salvation, Christ, the Son of God,

    Has saved the world by his cross and blood.

    The Lord has been sacrificed for all,

    Himself both priest and victim.

    The law commanded the sacrifice of victims,

    Foreshadowing the mysteries divine.

    Bestower of light and Savior of all,

    He granted most noble grace to his holy people.

    Let all draw near with pure and faithful minds,

    Let all receive the protection of eternal salvation.

  • O Christ Jesus, radiant light

    of the immortal glory of the Father of heaven! As the sun sinks to its setting

    we are face to face with the twilight of evening: we honour God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    You are worthy ever to be hymned by voices that are pure, Son of God who gives us life.

    The universe proclaims your glory.
