Confessions of St. Patrick

Archbishop Jerome Lloyd OSJVPosted by

“My name is Patrick. I am a sinner, a simple country person, and the least of all believers.”So opens the Confessions of a St. Patrick, the patron saint whose feast we seem to celebrate throughout March. Granted, if you are a fellow urban dweller in North America, you probably aren’t going to hear much about this incredible saint.

This continent has been celebrating St. Patrick since 1601 when the citizens of the colony of St. Augustine celebrated his feast with a Mass and a procession. St. Patrick, in his humility, could have hardly imagined how people would thank God for him a thousand years later and over a thousand miles from his home. And we continue to celebrate, even beneath the modern revelry.
