Saint Patrick’s Lorica Prayer of Protection for Justice Kavanaugh

by Fr Richard Heilman | October 14, 2018 11:30 am

A large group of witches is meeting in Brooklyn this month to place a curse on Judge Brett Kavanaugh “and upon all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens, rewards and protects them.”

Approximately 1,000 people have said they will attend the sold-out event on October 20, which will also be live-streamed on social media. A quarter of the proceeds will be donated to abortion giant Planned Parenthood, organizers stated.

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf[1] recommends the very powerful “Lorica of St. Patrick” to counter this spiritual attack.

Saint Patrick’s Lorica is a prayer for protection. Lorica, in Latin, means breastplate and refers to ancient armor worn to protect the chest.

An old tradition has it that on Easter morning, as Saint Partick and his band of missionaries proceeded in processional order, toward the king’s court, they chanted the sacred Lorica, called the Faed Fiada, or Deer’s Cry, specially composed by Patrick for their protection.

As the minions of the Druids lay in ambush to intercept and kill Patrick’s band on their way to court, the assassins now saw not Patrick and his companions pass, but a harmless herd of gentle deer, a doe followed by her twenty fawns. Hence the hymn’s title, the Faed Fiada—Deer’s Cry.

Having been carried safe by the Lord through the ambush prepared for them, Saint Patrick led his host into the king’s presence, chanting: “Let them that will, trust in chariots and horses, but we walk in the name of the Lord.”

Through all the centuries since, the Faed Fiada—which many authorities pronounced to be Patrick’s own work and the first hymn written in Gaelic—has been used by the Irish as a lorica for protection.

You can pray this any time for Justice Kavanaugh, but I ask that you pray it on October 20, to counter the witches’ plans to attempt to place a hex on him.

Saint Patrick’s Lorica for Protection

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the 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 the obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In the predictions of prophets,
In the preaching of apostles,
In the faith of confessors,
In the innocence of holy virgins,
In the deeds of righteous men.

I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The 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 shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptation of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
afar and near.

I summon today
All these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel and merciless power
that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul;
Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me an 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 everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
