Like to begin your day with prayer? Then use this "St. Patrick's Breastplate" holy card to do so. The beloved Christian hymn with Old Irish lyrics was attributed to St. Patrick in the 5th century until later information shows it is probably written in the 8th century.

The chest protects the heart and using this "St. Patrick's Breastplate" holy card prayer every morning invites protection for your heart which symbolically houses the spirit.

Being fully laminated with durable plastic, the "St. Patrick's Breastplate" holy card endures life in a wallet, purse, and backpack well for prayerful people on the go.
