The Confession of Saint Patrick
March 17, 2005 § 10 Comments
Little is documented about Patrick, even tho we “celebrate” in his name every year. There in fact are only two documents of this transplanted Roman that we have from his hand. No, he didn’t chase any snakes out of Ireland, but his life was nonetheless remarkable.
From Roman citizen, to kidnapped slave in Ireland, he escaped to home only to be called back to the land of his captivity, to release the spiritual captives there. Patrick was the first person to bring the Word of God to the Emerald Isle, and tho he wasn’t Catholic, (as we might understand it today,) his spiritual legacy lives on.
God bless you all on this day to remember an awesome man of God, and Slainte!!
Have a jar on me. 😉
