St Patrick is one of the Church’s great evangelists. He was profoundly grateful for his conversion and compelled to proclaim the gospel of Christ.

This is the great privilege of evangelizing – bearing witness ot the scaring, scorching love of God that burns away all selfishness, division and judgment so we serve the living God.
