The response of love

Saint Patrick who is commemorated in Ireland this day gave us a better understanding of the most Holy Trinity. That is a commonly known fact.
But he has done much more for the Emerald Island and for us all. He can be seen as a great model for the whole Catholic Family. It is so for not only has he mastered Gaelic in order spread the Gospel in the land of his captivity. Not only has he returned to the same land because of Jesus' calling. He has also served His Master and people in much more extended manner – namely as a bishop. 

And all because he knew that the one good response to the sinfulness and brutality of this world  -- no matter of the circumstances experienced by a particular sufferer --  is the response of love.  The one that has been born on the Cross to equip each and every missionary of Christ with inexhaustible hope.
