      Cheryl,
       
      Greetings! Great quote: where are you citing it from? I'd be very interested to know the original source.
       
      Thanks!

      I bind unto myself today the strong name of the trinity,

      I bind this day to me forever by power of faith Christ's incarnation,
      His baptism in the Jordan river, his death on the cross for my salvation;
      His bursting from the spiced tomb, his riding up the heavenly way,
      His coming at the day of doom I bind unto myself today.

      I bind unto myself today the power of God to hold and lead,
      His eye to watch, his might to stay, his ear to harken to my need,
      The wisdom of my God to teach, his hand to guide, his shield to ward,
      The Word of God to give me speech, his heavenly host to be my guard.

      Christ be with me, Christ within me,
      Christ behind me, Christ before me,
      Christ beside me, Christ to win me;
      Christ to comfort and restore me;
      Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
      Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
      Christ in hearts of all that love me,
      Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

      I bind unto myself the name, the strong name of the Trinity,
      By invocation of the same, the Three in One, and One in Three,
      Of whom all nature hath creation, eternal Father, Spirit, Word;
      Praise to the God of my salvation, salvation is of Christ the Lord!

        Thank you for the reply. The blog does not list a source. In fact, I cannot anywhere find a single citation of an original source for the quote, though it is published on numerous papist websites and also many popular Irish sites. I briefly looked over Patrick's "Confessio" and did not see it there either. As time and resumed interest permit this summer, I may look further.
         
        BTW, Interesting quote, but frightening picture ;-)

          Dear Christopher,
           
          Agreed about the pic.
           
          You might find the parody of Evolution Sunday to be interesting.  It contains the five points of Darwinism (THORN):
           
          Total Vulnerablity- we're at the mercy of nature
          Humanism- we must strive to advance a master race
          Oops- we're the product of chance, not design
          Resistance is Futile- you will be assimilated
          Natural Selection- (although it IS unconditional)
           
          or the Darwinist version of the Nicene Creed:
           
          I believe in the Bang Almighty,
          the Beginner of space and earth,
          and in the Primordial Goo, life's womb:

          In which life was conceived by complete chance,
          born as an amoeba,
          evolved into an insect,
          and then a worm, fish, and a whale.

          Thus the origin of mammals.

          The third billion year period it rose from the sea.

          It ascended onto the beach
          and crawled into the forest,
          where it became an ape
          so he could hide in the trees away from predators
          in order to stay living and not become dead.
          From whence it came down from the trees and began to farm, create religion, and have mortgages.

          I believe in the Survival of the Fittest,
          the holy Natural Selection,
          the evolution of organisms,
          the nonexistence of sins,
          the worthlessness of the body,
          and life nothing special.
          Amen.

            I believe that the Word can be trusted when it says that six days is
            six days.

            That He commanded the sun to stand still and not the earth.

            That there are no more than 6009 years of history (4004bc to date)

            I believe the animals present in the "moon landing" photos prove
            this was a film of Arizona, not the lunar landscape.

            I believe that monkeys remain monkeys even when we teach them to use
            typewriters or smoke cigars (not recommended).

            I believe that Hugh Ross worships the Devil and not God.

            I believe that Ken Ham's copernicanism is driven by fear of peers
            and not science.

            I believe that stars are lesser lights and not suns.

            I believe we live in a geo system and not a solar system.

            I still subscribe to Popular Mechanics though, because of all the
            useful stuff in there.

            All the best,
            Fred.
