St Patricks History

Saint Patrick's Day History

St. Patrick was born in the year of 385 in Britain. His father was a Catholic nobleman and a deacon. Patrick at the age of 16 was captured by slave raiders from Ireland. With a large group of prisoners he was transported to the than pagan island. He was sold to a king in the northeast, and his job was tending the pigs and sheep. After being held prisoner for six years he heard a voice in his sleep telling him, "Soon you will go back to your homeland". Than after a while he heard the same voice say, "Your ship is ready". Trusting the voice and believing in God, Patrick went on a 200 mile journey to find this ship. Finally he found the ship but the captain at first refused to take him.  Patrick asked God for help and soon after the captain changed his mind. After this incident Patrick dedicated his life to becoming a priest and teaching the Irish about Christianity. During his 30 years in Ireland Patrick had founded more than 300 churches, and he had baptized more than a 100,000 people. There was still a lot of people who disagreed with Patrick. He escaped from 12 attempts on his life. Patrick died from natural causes on March 17, 461. One of St. Patrick's ways to explain the concept of the Holy Trinity to unbelievers was by using the three leafed shamrock. The shamrock now Ireland's national flower is worn by the Irish on St. Patricks day.

St. Patricks Day is now celebrated with party favors, party supplies and green St. Patricks day decorations.
