Excerpts from: The Confession of Saint Patrick 2

translated by John Skinner

...So at last I came here to the Irish to preach the gospel... ...After many persecutions even to the point of chains. Now I was able to hand over the freedom of my birth for the benefit of others. And should I prove worthy, I am ready and willing to give my own life, without hesitation for his name. There would I be glad to pour out my soul even to the point of death, if the Lord would so grant it me, because I am so much in God’s debt... (20)
