St. Patricks Confessio: Section 1 - 5

Leading up to St. Patricks day I decided to read 4 - 5 sections of St. Patricks Confessio daily until I had finished it.  Will you join me as I read?  I will post quotes from each days reading, and possibly some thoughts on it, each day.   The text is free online, and 5 sections aren't very long, as each section is only one paragraph, and sometimes only a sentence.  I will be sharing a quote from the text each day, and some thoughts, and would like to hear yours as well.  It is available free online so I hope some of you will join me in reading this.

The sections I've already read are listed below...

- Day 1:  Sections 1-5 (Below)
Day 2:  Sections 6 - 10
- Day 3:  Sections 11-15
- Day 4:  Sections 16 - 22
- Day 5:  Sections 22 - 25
- Day 6:  Sections 26 - 32
- Day 7:  Sections 33 - 34
- Day 9:  Sections 35 - 39
- Day 10:  Sections 40 - 44
- Day 11:  Sections 45 - 47
- Day 12:  Sections 48 - 53
- Day 13:  Sections 54 - 58
- Day 14:  Sections 59 - 62

Confessio:  Sections 1 - 5

Section 1-3 introduces St. Patrick's kidnapping and the beginning of his faith.  In section 4-5 he talks about the trinity and his reason for sharing the Gospel. The following things he said about God really spoke to me.

He guarded me before I knew him, and before I came to wisdom and could distinguish between good and evil. He protected me and consoled me as a father does for his son.

...He is the one who was not begotten, the one without a beginning, the one from whom all beginnings come, the one who holds all things in being.
