Saint Patrick History, Invitations, and T-Shirts

Celebrating St Patrick's Day

To celebrate St Patrick's Day, one should know the history of this holiday. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He was born along the west coast of Britain in the village of Bannavem of Taburnia. Raiders captured Patrick with thousands of people, sold as slaves. Around 460 A.D. on March 17th is believed to be the day Saint Patrick had died. His life is a mystery. Although, many of us are familiar with the legend of how he banished all the snakes from Ireland. A myth.

It was near the end of the fourth century. St. Patrick (a Britain), at 16,  was taken prisoner by a group of Irish raiders, who were attacking his family's estate. He was held captive for six years in Ireland. During this time as a prisoner, he worked as a shepherd. He then turned to his religion for solace, becoming a devout Christian. Stories of St. Patrick suggested that he began to dream of converting the Irish people to Christianity during his captivity.

In his captivity, St. Patrick claimed to hear the word of the lord to leave Ireland. He walked nearly 200 miles as he escaped from County Mayo to the Irish coast. Once he was back in Britain, Patrick reported that he experienced a second revelation. An angel in a dream tells him to return to Ireland as a missionary. Believing that he had a calling to teach Christianity, he began religious training. This training lasted more than fifteen years. After his ordination as a priest, St. Patrick was sent to Ireland to minister to the Christians.
