A classic white Gildan hoodie is embellished on the front with an embroidered shamrock, and on the back with an exquisite Irish embroidery of a Shamrock and Celtic knot. Around the design are the words from the Lorica of Saint Patrick: "I clasp unto my heart this day the strength of the Trinity."
The Lorica is an ancient Gaelic prayer attributed to St. Patrick and is an invocation to the Holy Trinity, usually recited in the morning. The word, Lorica, is Latin, meaning shield or breastplate. Since prayer is a spiritual shield, protecting against spiritual evils, but also from physical ones.
