St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am not Irish, but I have always enjoyed this holiday! The following is some history:

St. Patrick was born in Wales, studied religion to become a priest and then went to Ireland to teach the people about God. There are many wonderful stories about St. Patrick, some true and some not true. The most famous legend is that he drove the snakes out of Ireland. This did not happen but the Irish will tell you that you cannot find a snake throughout the whole country of Ireland. The truth is he was a dedicated Christ-follower and preached Jesus and drove out the evil by his life, testimony and drive. Thus, he sort-of drove out the evil snakes.

i love st. patrick as well. wikipedia says this:

"When he was about 16 he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island."

what a christ-like man he must have been to return to the place he was enslaved to after escaping because they needed to hear the gospel!
