Saint-Patrick.jpgAlmighty God, Saint Patrick served You in Ireland because he had been kidnapped and shipped there as a slave.  You brought endless good out of the evil committed against him, so I ask Saint Patrick to pray for the Irish people—those born in Ireland and those of Irish descent, and to pray for unity between Protestants and Catholics.  Lord, bring an end to the division and fighting.  Turn hatred into love, war into peace, and prejudices into mutual understanding.  Teach us to conquer the real Enemy, the spirits of evil.  Help us to rely on the victory of the Cross for reconciliation between peoples.  Saint Patrick, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Patrick

And He watched over me before I knew Him and before I learned sense or even distinguished between good and evil. >>

It is always the same with those who do evil: they labor long only to yield death as their everlasting punishment. >>
