For the Beauty of the Earth

I arise today through a mighty strength,
the invocation of the Trinity,
through belief in the threeness,
through confession of the oneness
of the Creator of creation...

I arise today through the strength of heaven,
light of sun,
radiance of moon,
splendor of fire,
speed of lightening,
swiftness of wind,
depth of the sea,
stability of the earth,
firmness of rock...

-Lorica (incantation for protection) attributed to St. Patrick of Ireland (5th century)

Happy Earth Day!
