THREE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS.
These documents of St. Patrick are im
portant, his confession, bis hymn called
St. Patrick's Armor, and bis letter to
orotvdus. From these we can form an
idea of his religion and his character. His
letter to Corotvdus is a testimonial of his
patriotism and his piety. His confession

St. Patrick was. good enough to bolong

Patrick was ever married. His father and
grand-father were ciergyinou, Putrick
paid no nttention to consuls or bulls or
decrees. At that timo tho Irish believed

There is no record of his ever receiving n

I'atrirk's love for Ireland knew no limit.
From 440 A. D., when he landed in Ireland
as a missionary, to March 17, 4'Xi, when hii
spirit took its flight to glory, he nover left
his loved land, hut uais continually engaged
iu labors abundant for tho salvation of the
Irish people. Ho died at Down Patrick
in County Down.
Through him Ireland became a land of
schools and colleges, aud her sous weut
forth to enlighten tho world. Scotland
gave Patrick to Ireland mid Ireland gave
Columbine to Scotland. Tne latter estab
lished the monastery at Lough Foyle, and
established the Culdees on tho Island of
Ionia. The ruins of Ionia were exquisite
ly commented on by Dr. Johnson in 1773,
while gazing on ber ruins.
From the year M0 until U58 Ireland was
a land of plenty and happiness. In that
year Henry II and Adrian IV, au English
king and an ',nglish pope, couspired to
subject Ireland to the rule of Lnglaud.
This was done by the pope for the fee
known as reter s pence, in tbls instance
Adrian was not Infallible. Catholic say
he was acting ex cathedra, and acts done
whilo acting in thnt m. inner are not infal
lible. This act of Adrian wus severely
criticised by Donald O'Neel in 1213. To
quote Daniol O'Connell from that time

Dauiel O'Connell was the first Komau
Catholic to take a seat in the house of
commons, he fought for Catholic umiinci
patiou nnd won the day and Irish Presby
terians assisted him. On the llithnf April,
1820, the art whs Bigned nnd religious
liberty was secure I to Catholics, Presby
terians and Methodists. Religious com
pulsion originated in hell ami Its chief
supporter is the devil, He urged Philip
and Alva 300 years ago to attempt to force
tho Lowland of Holland to Roman
Catholicism, but It failed. He urged
Honry VIII to enforce Protestunism in
Ireland and thnt failed Ignoniiiiooipdv. No
religion of Jesus Christ can be enforced by
the bloody sword.
England has been making some restitu

treat Ireland as an equal. Olndstouu has
