Read St. Patrick in his own words

In preparation for St. Patrick’s day I decided to read St. Patrick’s Confessio.  It’s really interesting and the webpage http://www.confessio.ie/ has posted a great collection of versions of it. Here is how it begins:

My name is Patrick…
I am a sinner, a simple country person, and the least of all believers. I am looked down upon by many.
My father was Calpornius. He was a deacon; his father was Potitus, a priest, who lived at Bannavem Taburniae.
His home was near there, and that is where I was taken prisoner.
I was about sixteen at the time.

Read the rest here, and get into the real spirit of the holiday. Build your faith and avoid the hangover!
