Wearing the traditional medieval Episcopal vestments of Irish green, St. Patrick is pictured on this inspirational icon for devotional prayer. Known as the patron saint of the country of Ireland and people of Irish heritage, St. Patrick is one of the most well known Catholic saints. The St, Patrick icon features a scroll which quotes St. Patrick's profound words on the Trinity from his famous Lorica. Lorica means protective plate, as in breastplate; hence, the title of the prayer, 'St Patrick's Breastplate', from which these words are taken. The scroll reads, 'I bind to myself today the faith of the trinity in unity.' The religious scroll on the St. Patrick icon is adorned with a shamrock, a symbol of the Holy Trinity and the national emblem of Ireland. Mounted on walnut wood and measuring 8 x 10 inches, the inspirational St. Patrick icon is the perfect gift for your favorite Irish Catholic!
