Eminent Christians: St. Patrick

(I’m running a little behind here…) On St. Patrick’s day the Irish Christian historian Michael Haykin posted number 6 on his list of Emininent Christians, none other than the patron saint of the Irish, St. Patrick. Patrick was a missionary who faced strong opposition. Dr. Haykin notes
bq. Patrick’s response to these dangers reveals the true mettle of the man: “I fear none of these things because of the promises of heaven. I have cast myself into the hands of God Almighty, who rules everywhere, as the prophet says: ‘Cast thy thought upon God, and he shall sustain thee’.” [Confession 55 (trans. Bieler, Works of St. Patrick, 38)].
