    Hi everyone :)

    There is a very special prayer that I got from my mother that I have decided I would like to get as a tattoo and, being from Ireland but unfortunately not being able to speak Irish, would like help with translating it into Irish:

    'Sacred heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee'

    Your help would be very much appreciated!!

    Hi weegil,
    I don't have an Irish translation for this "Devotion to the Sacred Heart" I'm not really sure one exists. The devotions are popular in Ireland, but said in English as far as I know. Given that your location is Italy, you might be interested to know this was originally a Latin devotion ; then Italian, from which it was translated to English (perhaps in the 1700's or 1800's)

    Hi L'irlandais,
    That's interesting, I'll look up the Italian version!
    I got a translation in Irish from another forum, someone suggested "A Chroí ró-Naofa Críost, ionatsa a chuirim m'iontaoibh" - what do you think?
