Our Patron Saints
Laochra an Chreidimh No. 87.
St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. He’s known as the Apostle of Ireland and was also the first Bishop of Armagh.
When he was about sixteen he was captured from his home in Great Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After becoming a cleric, he returned to Northern and Western Ireland. In later life, he served as an ordained bishop, but little is known about the places where he worked. By the seventh century he had already come to be revered as the Patron Saint of Ireland and making Ireland a Catholic country.
Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on 17th of March, the date of his death. It is celebrated both inside and outside Ireland. It is a holyday of obligation in Ireland but in other countries it can be a celebration of Ireland itself.
I chose St. Patrick as my Confirmation saint because my granduncle has a big influence on my life. (Darragh – Scoil Eoin Baiste)

Father, on this the first anniversary of Pope Francis’ election to the Papacy, we thank you for his humble, joyful and very powerful witness to the Gospel, the Good News that comes from knowing your Son Jesus Christ. Pope Francis asks us to pray for him today and we do so in asking you to pour generously your love upon him to fill him with the gifts and the fruits of your Holy Spirit.

In Onóir Phádraig Naofa 2014
Céad míle fáilte do ghach duine atá ag teacht inár measc le haghaidh Lá ‘Le Phádraig agus The Dingle International Film Festival.
Déantar Lá Fhéile Pádraig a cheiliúradh ar fud an domhain le mórshiúil agus taispeántais agus ainmnítear daoine agus áiteanna ina onóir. Insítear scéalta agus cantar amhráin faoi Phádraig, ach is annamh a thugann siad léargas dúinn ar an Duine féin.
Is sa dá dhoiciméad a scríobh sé féin, an “Confessio” agus an “Litir Chuig Coroticus” a fhaighimid léargas ar Phádraig mar fhear: (i) Le creideamh láidir; (ii) A thug maithiúnas dá naimhde; (iii) A rinne nascadh idir chultúir. In aois sé bliana déag bhí Pádraig ina sclábhaí ag aoireacht caorach ar thaobh sléibhe i bhfad óna chairde agus óna mhuintir. Bhí sé uaigneach, fuar, ocrach. Cad a dhéanfá dá mbeifeá sa riocht sin? Cad a rinne Pádraig? Deir sé féin gur chuir sé a mhuinín i nDia agus gur tháinig Dia i gcabhair air. Fuair sé misneach agus sólás agus bealach éalaithe sa deireadh.
Guímis ar son ógra an lae inniu atá uaigneach, buartha, éadóchasach.
A Dhia, cuir i gcuimhne dóibh go dtabharfaidh tusa misneach,
dóchas agus neart dóibh má ghuíonn siad chugat,
dála mar a rinne Pádraig agus é ina dhéagóir.
A Thiarna, éist linn.
