St. Patricks Confessio: 54 - 58

This is possibly the oldest church still standing in Ireland, and
may be something like the churches where St. Patrick's converts,
or their children, worshiped, though it was not in the area where
he is thought to have preached.  You can see more pictures, 
including interior pictures, here

But what can I say, or what can I promise to my Lord? There is nothing I have that is not his gift to me.
~ St. Patrick

In this passage St. Patrick talks about how he seeks glory from God, not men, and how he is ready to face martyrdom if need be for the sake of the ministry God gave him.  He again gives the credit to God for what he has accomplished, and will accomplish.
