O God, You sent Your blessed servant St. Patrick, to teach and save the people of his time
and place. You gave our Patron a loving heart like Your own. You filled him with great
faith and a burning desire to work hard for Your Kingdom. Please listen when he prays for
us. Grant to us, through his intercession, a lively faith, a firm hope and a strong will
to build Your Kingdom. Amen.
(from Litany of Saint Patrick)
