"Christ Before Me, Christ Behind Me"

These words of St. Patrick can apply to every aspect of life... but what about bedtime? Asking Christ to bless "the night or day before me and the night or day behind me" is illustrated boldly in our new St. Patrick's Breastplate Pillowcase.  This lovely linen features our new Mini Celtic Cross design along with the powerful monogram, applicable and appropriate for any pillow. Best of all, it's made for standard or queen sizes!
Do you have a favorite bedtime or morning prayer that you think would be perfect for a pillow? Let us know in the combox!


  1. Perfect for children!

    Angel of God, my guardian dear
    to whom God's love commits me here.
    Ever this night be at my side
    to light, to guard, to rule and guide.

    In Latin:

    Angele Dei,
    qui custos es mei,
    me, tibi commissum pietate superna,
    illumina, custodi,
    rege et guberna.

  2. I love this St. Patrick's breastplate embroidery. I wonder if you might do this one on a handkerchief?

  3. Gail -

    Yes, the Mini Celtic Cross design looks great on handkerchiefs. I'm sure we could even fit one of the ejaculations of the prayer on there as well. Let me know if you want to put this idea into action!
