Top 'O the Mornin' to Ye!

For your edification on this most hallowed of the saints' days, here's a link to the Confessions of St. Patrick.
Unfortunately, Patrick was a relatively modest fellow. The Confessions are short and to the point; the real meat is in all the cool stuff that people wrote about him later.
I still like the part with the pirates and pigs best.
(See also the Catholic Encyclopedia for a slightly less over-the-top hagiography.)
