Quote/s of the Day – 17 March – The Memorial of St Patrick (c 386-461)
All quotations from “The Confession of St Patrick”
“For that sun, which we see rising every day, rises at His command…”
“Each and all shall render account for even our smallest sins
before the judgement seat of Christ the Lord.”
“In a single day,
I have said as many as a hundred prayers
and in the night almost as many…”
“If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God…”
“I am Patrick, yes a sinner and indeed untaught;
yet I am established here in Ireland,
where I profess myself bishop.
I am certain in my heart that ‘all that I am,’
I have received from God.
So I live among barbarous tribes, a stranger and exile
for the love of God.”
“May the strength of God pilot us,
may the wisdom of God instruct us,
may the hand of God protect us,
may the word of God direct us.
Be always ours this day and for evermore.”
St Patrick (c 386-461)
