Saint Patrick

I am imperfect in many things, nevertheless I want my brethren and kinsfolk to know my nature so that they may be able to perceive my soul’s desire.” ~Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick was born in Scotland around year 387. The area for which Saint Patrick grew up in was ruled by the Roman military. As a teenager he was captured by a raiding party and forced into slavery. He was taken to Ireland to tend to sheep as a Shepard. He learned the language and traditions of his captors. Ireland at this time was comprised of Druids and Pagans.

It is also during this time Saint Patrick turned to God and prayer. His captivity lasted until his early twenties, where he had a dream about escaping and returning to his family. He acted out on this dream and eventually reunited with his family.

Back in Scotland, Saint Patrick studied to become a priest. He would later return to Ireland to build churches and reform the people of Ireland. He used the famous shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. The shamrock has been associated with him and Ireland since this time.
