A PRAYER TO ST. PATRICK.

 

 

O glorious St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland ! I praise,
bless, and glorify God for thy sanctity, thy zeal, thy
charity, thy labours, and the success of thy labours.
I thank thee, O great St. Patrick, for watching over,
and preserving the faith of the Irish people. O dearest
St. Patrick ! heed not the unworthiness of thy children;
but continue, in the future as in the past, to pray for them.
O glorious Apostle, St. Patrick, guard and preserve, to
the Day of Judgment, the purity of the faith and morals
of thy people in every land and in every clime. O beloved
St. Patrick ! obtain from God that Erin, our dear country,
may become again what she formerly was, "THE ISLAND
OF SAINTS AND SCHOLARS." Amen.
