Irish Blessings ...

"An Irish Prayer"

May God give you ...

For every storm, a rainbow

For every tear, a smile

For every care, a promise

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share

For every sigh a sweet song

And an answer for each prayer.


The autumn sunshine of a gorgeous Indian Summer day
smiles on St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Belvidere, New Jersey.
The shamrock windows give a touch of an Irish blessing, with a
beautiful statue of Jesus Christ with his arms outstretched above them.

The cornerstone of this quaint, picturesque church at
327 Greenwich Street was laid in 1891.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on 
the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.
