St Patrick's Prayer Decorative Tile
The prayer forms part of a long liturgical poem known as St Patrick’s Lorica or breastplate. This version was translated from the Gaelic by Cecil Alexander in 1889. “...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...” The wording on the tile forms a spiral, in itself much used in the early Christian church of Britain and Ireland to represent growth and fulfilment.
Made in Britain, Black Dog Tiles hand make all their wall plaques at their workshops in Bath and their clay comes from Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire.
