St Patrick, Bishop (F)

Jeremiah 1:4-9; Psalm 106; Acts 13:46-49; Luke 10:1-2, 17-20

A faithful servant of God

Today we remember St Patrick, bishop of Ireland and tireless worker in preaching the faith throughout Ireland. He was born in Britain about 385, was taken captive and sold as a slave to Ireland when a young boy. He worked as a herdsman, escaped and decided to become a priest. What a model Patrick provides for us in our role as evangelists and preachers of the good news of Jesus Christ. May our lives bear witness to the faith we profess and may our love bring others to the joy and peace of the gospel.
