„If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.“

—  Saint Patrick 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland 385 - 461

Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus (c.450?)
Kontext: I am Patrick, yes a sinner and indeed untaught; yet I am established here in Ireland where I profess myself bishop. I am certain in my heart that "all that I am," I have received from God. So I live among barbarous tribes, a stranger and exile for the love of God. He himself testifies that this is so. I never would have wanted these harsh words to spill from my mouth; I am not in the habit of speaking so sharply. Yet now I am driven by the zeal of God, Christ's truth has aroused me. I speak out too for love of my neighbors who are my only sons; for them I gave up my home country, my parents and even pushing my own life to the brink of death. If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.
