St Patrick, Enlightener of Ireland, shown with the shamrock he used to explain the mystery of the Holy Trinity

O God, who in thy providence didst choose thy servant Patrick to be the Apostle of the Irish people, that he might cause the light of the Gospel to shine in the world: Grant us so to walk in that light, that we may come at last to the light of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, who in thy providence didst choose thy servant Patrick to be the apostle of the Irish people, that he might bring those who were wandering in darkness and error to the true light and knowledge of thee: Grant us faithfully to walk in that light, and shew forth thy glory before the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
