 General Description:

This beautiful, laminated holy card is made in Italy. On the reverse is the "Prayer to St. Patrick."

Hail, glorious St. Patrick!  We honor thy name.
Tho' Erin may claim thee, the world knows thy fame.
The faith of our fathers is our treasure too.
How holy the thought, that they learned it from you.
Thru crosses and trials its fires burn bright.
They show us the way, and the truth, and the light.
Great Saint intercede, that we always may be
Devoted and loyal, true children of thee.
Our love and devotion be ever like thine,
Our thought be of Jesus, our heart be His shrine.
And when to the end of life's path we have trod,
Be near us great Bishop, Annointed of God.

Profile

    Kidnapped from the British mainland around age 16, and shipped to Ireland as a slave. Sent to the mountains as a shepherd, he spent his time in the field in prayer. After six years of this life, he had a dream in which he was commanded to return to Britain; seeing it as a sign, he escaped. He studied in several monasteries in Europe. Ordained a priest and then a bishop. Sent by Pope Celestine to evangelize England, then Ireland, during which his chariot driver was Saint Odran, and Saint Jarlath was one of his spiritual students. In 33 years he effectively converted the Ireland. In the Middle Ages Ireland became known as the Land of Saints, and during the Dark Ages its monasteries were the great repositories of learning in Europe, all a consequence of Patrick’s ministry.
