Whats the name of this prayer?

Yep. It was also called The Deer’s Cry because of a story about how St. Patrick prayed this prayer once when the King’s men pursued them. He and his followers were transformed into deer and thus were saved from their pursuers. :slight_smile:

Also also called the Lorica (Latin for breastplate)

It is beautiful. There is beautiful music to it too. Father Wilson our holy priest, said the prayer on Easter in his homily.
