The Confession of Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick
May it never befall me to be separated by my God from his people whom he has won in this most remote land. I pray God that he gives me perseverance, and that he will deign that I should be a faithful witness for his sake right up to the time of my passing.
— St. Patrick

Prayer to St. Patrick, Patron of Ireland

Holy Saint Patrick, in your humility you acknowledged your sinfulness, but you became a most successful missionary and prompted countless pagans to follow Christ the Savior. Many of their descendants helped to spread the Good News the world over. Through your powerful intercession with God, obtain the missionaries we need to continue the work you began, and win souls for Christ today. Amen.
