Eliot got things off to a good start last night as he just flopped on the mat - fast asleep!
in your providence you chose your servant Patrick
to be the apostle of the Irish people,
to bring those who were wandering in darkness and error
to the true light and knowledge of your Word:
Grant that walking in that light
we may come at last to the light of everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Book of Common Prayer
Collect of Saint Patrick's Day
