The Confession of St Patrick

An ancient statue of St Patrick, St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, Ireland.
Dear Students and Friends,

You might consider St Patrick to be a Catholic saint, but his life during the years of 390-461 AD puts him squarely in the Orthodox age! So we can also claim him as our own.

His Confession makes wonderful and encouraging reading, for Patrick reveals his own faith and his mission to the Irish. His missionary heart and deep humility beam from every page. What is remarkable is that he came to serve and love the people--the Irish--who had enslaved him during his youth.

Reading the Confession is a must for every Christian.

You can now earn credit for reading St Patrick's Confession. Simply read, fill out the General Worksheet for books (available from the Lessons tab at the top of this website), and email it to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com.

Read the Confession for FREE here.

Amazon also carries a short video on St Patrick's life. I recently watched it and it is a beautiful film. The narrator reads part of the Confession as scenes of Ireland are shown. Several speakers on the film explain Patrick's life and impact on Christianity. If you would like 1 credit for watching this film, you can watch, fill out the worksheet for TV/movies (available from the Lessons tab at the top of this website), and email it to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com.

Watch the film here.
