Transcript of Practically Loved

Matthew 22:37-40
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
I John 3:12-15
Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous. Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
Who do you hate?
Hatred equated with murder

The world doesn't get us

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." Jn 15:18

What if we were more offended by hatred than other sins?
I John 3:16-18
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
John 13:34
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
I John 3:11
For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.

St. Patrick’s Breastplate

I arise today
Through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in Threeness,
Through confession of Oneness 
Of the Creator of creation.
I arise today 
Through the strength of Christ's birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial, 
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels, in hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs, 
In predictions of prophets
In preaching of the apostles,
In faiths of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men. 

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven; 
Light of the sun, Radiance of moon
Splendor of fire, Speed of lightning, Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea, Stability of earth, Firmness of rock. 

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me;
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, 
God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, 
God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, 
God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, 
God's hosts to save me 

From snares of devil, 
From temptations of vices, 
From every one who showest me ill, 
Afar and anear, 
Alone and in multitude.
I summon today all these powers
between me and those evils,
Against every cruel and merciless power
that may oppress my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagan-dom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against the craft of idolatry, 
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul. 
Christ shield me today 
Against poison, against burning, 
Against drowning, against wounding,
So there may come to me abundance of reward.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, 
Christ on my right, Christ on my left, 
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, 
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me, 
Christ in the ear that hears me.
We arise today
Through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation

Praise the Lord!

St. Patrick (ca. 377)
