Summary

Summary

Inspirations from the Patron Saint of Ireland Of all the saints through the centuries, St. Patrick stands out as the most universally beloved--and the symbol of all that is Irish. Although much of his life has been shrouded in myth and legend, two of his important writings have survived. St. Patrick's voice speaks to us clearly and compellingly in these documents. And from the well of his thoughts, consolation and understanding can be drawn. The Wisdom of St. Patrick celebrates the life and the spirit of this remarkable individual, revealing a powerful, charismatic man whose thoughts are just as relevant today as they were more than a millennium ago. Accessibly arranged by spiritual topics ranging from honesty and grace to faith and prayer, St. Patrick's own words are enriched by commentary on his life and times, contemplations that tie into issues of daily life, and a meaningful prayer relevant to each quoted passage. Nowhere has the wisdom of St. Patrick been so eloquently presented. This wonderful volume is a treasury of inspiration that will be a cherished gift, not only for the saint's feast day, but for every day of the year as well.
