A prayer card with a prayer to St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland.
O Blessed Apostle of Ireland;
glorious St. Patrick! who did become the father and
benefactor of that land long before my birth, receive
my prayers, and accept the sentiments of gratitude and
veneration with which my heart is filled towards You.
You are the channel of my grateful thanksgivings to
God for having granted, through you that precioto
gift of faith which is to us than life.
O most blessed father and patron of that country! do
not, I beseech You despite my weakness.
Remember that the cries of little children were the
mysterious indication that You did receive to go.
Listen, then, so my most humble supplications;
I unite them to the praises and blessings which
will ever follow Your name and Your
memory through the Irish Church.
I unite them to the prayers of the multitude of our
ancestors, who now enjoy eternal bliss,
and owe their salvation, under God, to Your zeal
and charity. They will eternally share
Your glory, because they listened to
Your word and followed Your example.
Ah since I am descended from saints, I
will not go against them, may I begin from
this moment so to love God with all my
heart and serve Him with all my strength.
for this end, I most humbly beg Your blessing.
O great St. Patrick! and Your particular
intercession, for obtaining whatever grace
You see to be most necessary for me. Amen.
