St. Patrick’s Day

Before I was humiliated I was like a stone that lies in deep mud, and he who is mighty came and in his compassion raised me up and exalted me very high and placed me on the top of the wall.
Saint Patrick

We give you thanks, almighty God,
for sending Saint Patrick to preach your glory to the people of Ireland.
Grant that we who are proud to call ourselves Christians
may never cease to proclaim to the world the good news of salvation.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
(one) God, for ever and ever.
