A brief story of St. Patrick
St. Patrick is one of the world's most popular saints. He was born in Roman Britain and when he was about fourteen years old, he was captured by Irish pirates and taken to Ireland as a slave. St. Patrick was in captivity for 6 years. He escaped after having a dream from God in which he was told to leave Ireland by going to the coast. There he encountered sailors who took him back to Britain.
A few years later, Patrick had a vision that prompted him to study for priesthood. After some time, he was ordained as a priest, and was later installed a bishop and sent to spread the Gospel to Ireland. St. Patrick was able to convert the chieftain, after an intervention from God, and eventually converted thousands of pagans, building churches across the country. He often used shamrocks to explain the Holy Trinity.
St. Patrick preached for 40 years. He worked many miracles and wrote of his love for God in Confessions. After years of living in poverty, traveling and enduring much suffering he died March 17, 461.
Did you know? St. Patrick is one of two patrons of the Diocese of Burlington!
