An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

May the smile of God light you to glory ...

God Bless the Irish and their blessings. 
Here is a morning blessing.

Christ be with me,
be after me,
be before me,
and be at my right and left hand.

May everything I do be for Christ.


A similar blessing is found on the breastplate of St Patrick and k and a

From Saint Patrick's Breastplate:
 
Christ be 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 where I lie
Christ where I sit
Christ where I arise
Christ in the heart of every man
who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me
Christ in every ear that hears me
Salvation is of the Lord.
