CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 17, 2017
MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE MAN KNOWN AS ST. PATRICK. LITTLE OF WHAT HE WROTE SURVIVES, BUT THIS DOES AND I THOUGHT IT APPROPRIATE TO SHARE THIS PRAYER OF HIS:
“God, my God, omnipotent King, I humbly adore thee. Thou art King of kings, Lord of lords. Thou art the Judge of every age. Thou art the Redeemer of souls. Thou art the Liberator of those who believe. Thou art the Hope of those who toil. Thou art the Comforter of those in sorrow. Thou art the Way to those who wander. Thou art Master to the nations. Thou art the Creator of all creatures. Thou art the Lover of all good. Thou art the Prince of all virtues. Thou art the joy of all Thy saints. Thou art life perpetual. Thou art joy in truth. Thou art the exultation in the eternal fatherland. Thou art the Light of light. Thou art the Fountain of holiness. Thou art the glory of God the Father in the height. Thou art Savior of the world. Thou art the plenitude of the Holy Spirit. Thou sittest at the right hand of God the Father on the throne, reigning for ever.”
