St. Aidan's Prayer
St. Aidan's Prayer for the Holy Island of Lindisfarne

Lord, this bare island,
make it a place of peace.

Here be the peace of those who do Thy will.

Here be the peace of brother and sister serving man.
Here be the peace of holy friends obeying.
Here be the peace of praise by dark and day.
Be this Island Thy Holy Island.

I, Lord, Thy servant, Aidan, make this prayer.
Be it Thy care.

Congratulations. Our 9 mo old is also named for an Irish saint, Brendan. :) Of course, we actually named him that because I love Frederick Buechner (who wrote a book about him) and didn't want to name the kid Frederick.

All that to say, you must be in heaven right now. Sleep-deprived hell. But heaven nonetheless.
