Description

St. Patrick is known as the patron saint of Ireland. He was born between 390 AD and 373 AD. His birth place is believed to be in either Scotland or Roman England. Patrick was the son of Calpurnius, a Roman-British army officer. When Patrick was a child in South Wales, a band of pirates kidnapped him and other boys and sold them into slavery in Ireland, where Patrick was imprisoned for 6 years. During Patrick’s captivity, he dreamed of having seen God and of being commanded by God to escape in a getaway ship. Patrick spent 12 years in religious training. When he became a bishop, Patrick dreamed that the Irish were calling him back to Ireland to tell them about God, and he set out for Ireland with the Pope's blessings. In Ireland, Patrick converted the Gaelic Irish to Christianity. He traveled throughout Ireland with tireless commitment, baptizing and confirming the Irish. Legend has it that Saint Patrick put the curse of God on venomous snakes in Ireland, driving all the snakes into the sea. For 20 years he traveled throughout Ireland establishing monasteries, schools and churches, using a three-leaf clover, a “shamrock,” to explain the concept of the Trinity of God. He developed an Irish clergy, established dioceses and held church councils. St. Patrick died on March 17 in 461 AD, and March 17 has been commemorated as St. Patrick's Day ever since.
