All firefighters seem to love St. Patrick. Especially on St. Patricks Day. I bet he has a soft spot for us too. St. Patrick and St. Florian...... Sounds like a pretty good RIT to me.
The St Patrick Statue (Left) is from Church of the Sacred Heart, Thornton, Cleveleys, UK. The St. Florian Statue (Right) is in a square in Frydek Mistek, town in Czech Republic
The prayer at the bottom is a portion of one of St. Patrick's prayers. I think we could all use a little blessing. It reads:
"May the Strength of God guide us. May the Power of God preserve us. May the Power of God preserve us. May the wisdom of God instruct us. May the Hand of God protect us. May the Way of God direct us. May the Shield of God defend us. May the Angels of God guard us. Against the snares of the evil one.... THIS DAY LORD AND FOREVER MORE. AMEN" St. Patrick
