House of Bishops

Another version of St. Patrick’s breastplate. This version I picked up from commenter Donal Clair in Ireland.

I bind to the Episcopal House of Bishops this day the power of God to guide them, the might of God to uphold them, the wisdom of God to teach them, the eye of God to watch over them, the ear of God to hear them, the word of God to give them speech, the hand of God to protect them, the shield of God to shelter them, the host of God to defend them against evil, against the lust of nature, against every person who meditates injury to them, whether far or near, whether alone or with many.
I have invoked all these virtues against every hostile, savage power warring upon their bodies and souls, against the evil laws of paganism, against the false laws of heresy, against the false promises of idolatry and against all knowledge which blinds the soul of humanity.
