              From the Confession of St Patrick 
I give thanks to my God tirelessly who kept me faithful in the day of trial, so that today I offer sacrifice to him confidently, living sacrifice of my life to Christ, my Lord, who preserved me in all my troubles. I can say therefore: who I am Lord and what is my calling that you should co-operate with me with such divine power? 
Today, among heathen peoples, I praise and proclaim your name in all places, not only when things go well but in times of stress. Whether I receive good or ill, I return thanks equally to God, who taught me always to trust him unreservedly. His answer to my prayer inspired me in these latter days to undertake his holy and wonderful work in spite of my ignorance, and to imitate in some way those who, as the Lord foretold, would preach his Good News as a witness to all nations before the end of the world.
How did I come by this wisdom which was not my own, I who neither knew what was in store for me, nor what it was to relish God? What was the source of the gift I got later, the great and beneficial gift of knowing and loving God, even if it meant leaving my homeland and my relatives?
I came to the Irish heathens to preach the Good News and to put up with insults from unbelievers. I heard my mission abused, I endured many persecutions even to the extent of chains; I gave up my free-born status for the good of others. Should I be worthy I am ready to give my life, promptly and gladly, for his name; and it there I wish to spend it until I die, if the Lord should graciously allow me.
