The Heart of Patrick of Ireland

"Now on this account, be amazed all you who fear God, both great and small, ... who stirred up me, a fool, ... to be fit to help (if only I could!) ... that race of people to which the love of Christ drew me and thus spend the rest o fmy life, if only I might prove worthy; simple to serve them in humility and truth. ... I must take this decision, disregarding any risks involved, and make known the gifts of God and his everlasting consolation. Neither must we fear any such risk in faithfully preaching God's name boldly in every place, so that even after my death a spiritual legacy may be left for my brethren and my children."
