I Am Patrick

I Am Patrick

Happy St Patrick’s Day!   In case you have not found it there is a wonderful website on St Patrick at www.confessio.ie. The website is supported by the Royal Irish Academy and what a feast it is. Not a shamrock nor a druid in site! Here you can find St Patrick’s Confession and his letters and also the early Lives of Patrick who was the first person in Ireland to have his Life written. You can see the earliest editions of the works and links to other interesting sites. The simple and stark language of the Confessio is striking, ” I am Patrick, a sinner …”.  The site is indeed a great addition to the St Patrick’s festivities.
