O God, Who didst vouchsafe to send Thy Confessor and Bishop, Blessed Patrick, to preach 
Thy glory to the nations, 
Grant, through his merits and intercession, that what Thou dost command 
Us to do, we may, by Thy mercy, be enabled to perform. 
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.

 Patrick
