St. Patrick—His Confession
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
“You can judge and believe in all truth that it was a gift of God.
This is my confession before I die.”
St. Patrick was a fifth century bishop who came to be known as the “Apostle of Ireland.”
A confession is thought of today primarily as an acknowledgment of guilt. It can also refer to the praise of God’s greatness or a profession of faith.
In this Confession, St. Patrick recounts and gives thanks for the many blessings of God which Patrick had experienced throughout his life, despite his failings and limitations.
St. Patrick, pray for us!
