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.

Pope St. Caius stayed hidden in the Catacombs (and ran the Church) for 8 years. It certainly seems possible the Saint would have continued "hidden" for a decade, or even longer if he had not been captured. Was he betrayed... like his Master was?

It is a pious tradition that on Good Friday from noon, the time when Our Blessed Lord was first cruelly nailed to the cross, until 3:00 p.m., when He finished His total immolation for us and died, for one to be silent [don't speak unless duty requires].
