The authors of these prayers and poems are obscure. Van de Weyer speculates that some may have been written by Patrick himself, Brigid, Columba, Kevin, Mungo, Aidan, and David, but goes no farther than attributing their preservation to nineteenth century scholars who visited remote regions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Cornwall, where the old Celtic languages were still spoken.
My favorite is the prayer on "Self-Deception." The world would be a better place if we all heeded its call to "be as honest with ourselves as we are with others."
