Book Summary:
Hello, my name is Patrick.
You may have heard my story.
I walked the span of Ireland
to tell of God’s great glory.
And with a wee green shamrock
I shared of the Three-in-One:
our God—the blessed mystery—
Father, Spirit, and the Son.

Everybody’s Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day. But did you know that Patrick—the greatest bishop of Ireland—wasn’t Irish? Combining Patrick’s words from his Confessions with a few of the legends about him, this whimsical retelling will teach families about the fascinating life of the real Saint Patrick and help them discover a remarkable story of love and forgiveness along the way.

Told in rollicking rhyme and beautifully illustrated with Ned Bustard’s signature linocut artwork, this children’s book will be enjoyed by kids and the adults who read with them. Also included is a note from the author to encourage further conversation about the content.
