"I have made you a light for the nations, so that my salvation may reach the ends of the earth."

The Confession of St. Patrick

"I, Patrick, a sinner, a most simple countryman, the least of all the faithful and most contemptible to many, had for father the deacon Calpurnicus, son of the late Potitus, a priest, of the settlement [vicus] of Bannavem Taburniae; he had a small villa nearby where I was taken captive. I was at that time about sixteen years of age. I did not, indeed, know the true God; and I was taken into captivity in Ireland with many thousands of people, according to our deserts, for quite drawn away from God, we did not keep his precepts, nor were we obedient to our priests who used to remind us of our salvation. And the Lord brought down on us the fury of his being and scattered us among many nations, even to the ends of the earth, where I, in my smallness, am now to be found among foreigners.

"And there the Lord opened my mind to an awareness of my unbelief, in order that, even so late, I might remember my transgressions and turn with all my heart to the Lord my God, who had regard for my insignificance and pitied my youth and ignorance. And he watched over me before I knew him, and before I learned sense or even distinguished between good and evil, and he protected me, and consoled me as a father would his son.

"Therefore, indeed, I cannot keep silent, nor would it be proper, so many favours and graces has the Lord deigned to bestow on me in the land of my captivity. For after chastisement from God, and recognizing him, our way to repay him is to exalt him and confess his wonders before every nation under heaven.

"He himself said through the prophet: 'Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.' And again: 'It is right to reveal and publish abroad the works of God.'"

Prayer to Saint Patrick

O Blessed Apostle of Ireland, glorious Saint Patrick, many centuries ago you converted Ireland to Christ. Receive my grateful and heartfelt prayers today and intercede for me and for those I love.

I unite my prayers to those of all your spiritual children, turning confidently to God through the ages. May I begin anew at this moment to love God with all my heart and serve him with all my strength.

Gain for me that missionary spirit which inspired you to work for the Gospel. Open my heart to charity for all the poor that they may find joy and relief and give glory to God with all the saints. Amen.
