    One thought on “St. Patrick: His Confession and Other Works”

    1. Before I listened to this short book I knew virtually nothing about St Patrick. Having listened to it I have a greater sense of the man, his passions, challenges and insecurities, but I still feel I know little about the events of his life. The largest part of this book is his Confessions. He seemed to be defending himself against some sort of charge, and there was a great deal of sadness in his writing. Unfortunately his writing is disorganised, making it difficult to follow his train of though [...]

    2. How much do you know about St. Patrick? I bet not much, besides his being the Apostle of Ireland who cast out snakes and taught about the Holy Trinity using a shamrock.St. Patrick himself didn't leave much writing. This book is a compilation of the few writings by himself and some others written about him by other people. It also includes the complete version of the famous prayer of "St. Patrick's Breastplate."An essential read for Catholics especially those interested in hagiography.

    3. The collected works included prayers and Saint Patrick’s Confessions. He spoke about his finding and relationship with God and briefly touched on his life. I didn’t learn as much about Saint Patrick as I had hoped, but I did get a sense of his thoughtfulness towards Christianity and his devotion to God.

    4. Saint Patrick himself did not leave enough written material behind to fill a book, but Fr. O'Donoghue wisely decided to round out this volume with suggested prayers and the transcript of an excellent sermon delivered by then-pope (now Saint) John Paul II on his October, 1979 visit to Ireland.As one of his namesakes, I'm glad for having had the chance to read Patrick's Confessio and his Letter to Coroticus and His Soldiers. Although some of the language in both essays sounds stilted to modern ear [...]

    5. Short book by and about St. Patrick. Best for Catholics who may want a little more info on Patrick and some of the surrounding information. Has a chapter by a 20th century pope who was the first pope to visit Ireland, a liturgy and a devotional.

    6. Did not read this version - rather read the text of the confession - very challenging. We rush to read all the contemporary books & authors - yet fail to mine the riches of those who went before us & did not live in plush homes, writing on computers or reading electronic media - just A thought
