Breastplate of St. Patrick

With this most recent election over, I feel like I should say something about politics. But I don't want to. Instead, I want to share a section of this poem attributed to Saint Patrick. Here is where I want to take my stand and place my identity. Love you guys.

Christ with me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me, Christ within me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ at my right, Christ at my left...
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I bind to myself today
The strong virtue of an invocation of the Trinity,
I believe the Trinity in the Unity
The Creator of the Universe.
