Read introduction

Short, almost monosyllabic summary of Patrick’s Confession. This man is a hero of mine, I have read his full Confession and its better than most films. His is a true account!
This weekend leads into St Patricks day on 17th March, so a Happy St Patricks Day to one and all!

Mé Pádraig

Mé Pádraig, peacach,
Mac easpag Rómhánach,
Ní raibh mé eolach ar an Dia maireachtála.
Agus i mo óige, nuair a fuair mé féin a bhaint go hÉirinn,,
I gcoinne mo thoil.
Agus ansin i bportach uafásach agus cnoc oibrigh mé,
Aonair, shíl mé, go dtí
Go bhuail sé dom.
Agus thug mé amach, chun áit a lámha pollta arís ar dom,
Agus glaoch orm, de réir ainm ó neamh,
An Úll a súl,
Deartháir a Mhac.
Agus sheoladh dom do chompord a spiorad,
Fhill mé a bhaint as an nathair
Brúite aige.
Tá mé Pádraig, peacach.

I PATRICK
I Patrick, a sinner,
Son of a Roman bishop,
Did not know the Living God.
And in my youth, once found myself removed to Ireland,
Against my will.
And there in hellish bog and hill I toiled,
Alone I thought, until
He met me.
And led me out, to place his pierced hands again on me,
And call me, by name from Heaven,
The Apple of his Eye,
Brother to his Son.
And sending me his Spirit’s comfort,
Did I return to chase the Serpent
That he did crush.
I am Patrick, a sinner.
