The Shamrock

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle, 'Twas Saint Patrick himself, sure, that set it; And the sun of his labor with pleasure did smile, And with dew from his eye often wet it. It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the mireland, And they call it the dear little Shamrock of Ireland.

A Celtic Prayer of Blessing

May the road rise up
and welcome thee,
May the wind always
be upon they back,
May the sun always
warm thy face,
And may the rain
fall softly on thy fields.

The Fisherman's Prayer:

"Thou King of deeds
and power above,
Thy fishing blessing
pour down on us.
I will cast down my hook,  the first fish which I bring up,
In the name of Christ,
King of the elements,
the poor shall have it at his wish."

Coronation Stone

August 8, 1296 the Scottish Coronation Stone, the Stone of Destiny, was removed from Scone Abbey. The stone was taken on the orders of King Edward I of  England, and was transported to Westminster Abbey, where it was used to crown English monarchs until it was returned to Scotland in 1996. The stone itself is a block of red sandstone, and was said to have been used by Jacob, father of the twelve tribes of Israel, as a pillow.
