St-Patrick Confession


We usually think of a “confession” as when a person acknowledges some guilt for wrongdoing. An older use has also other meanings such as Confession of God’s greatness – Praise, and Confession of Faith – such as in the Creed, a profession of faith. The Confession of St Patrick is mostly the Confession of God’s greatness as Patrick has experienced it in his own life, despite all his limitations. There are several translations of the writings of St Patrick available, one of them is the Saint Patrick’s Confessio Hypertext Stack Project.

The following translation of St-Patrick Confession comes from “St. Patrick: His Writings and Life” by Rev. Newport J. D White, [Translations of Christian Literature, Ser. V: Lives of the Celtic Saints] (London & NY: Macmillan 1920).
