About St. Patrick
It is believed that St. Patrick was born in fifth century Britain to Roman parents. When he was sixteen, he was captured by pirates and taken to Ireland. There he was sold as a slave. His owner sent him to tend his flocks of sheep on the mountains. Patrick had very little food and clothing. Yet he took good care of the animals in rain, snow and ice. Patrick was so lonely on the hillside that he turned often in prayer to Jesus and his mother Mary. His life was hard and unfair. But Patrick’s trust in God grew stronger all the time.
Six years later, when he escaped from Ireland, Patrick decided to become a priest. After years of study and preparation, he was ordained. After some time he was made a bishop. Now what Patrick wanted more than anything else was to return to Ireland and bring the light of faith in Jesus to the Irish people. It was while St. Celestine I was pope that Patrick went back to Ireland. How happy he was to bring the Good News of the true God to the people who once had held him a slave!
Right from the start, Patrick suffered much. His relatives and friends wanted him to quit before the people of Ireland killed him. Yet Patrick kept on preaching about Jesus. He traveled from one village to another. He seldom rested, and he performed great penances for those people whom he loved so much. Before he died, the whole nation of Ireland was Christian. In spite of his great success, St. Patrick never grew proud. He called himself a poor sinner and gave all the praises to God. In his Confessio,Patrick wrote about his work of spreading the faith among the Irish. Most of what we know about his life comes from this writing. Patrick died in 461.
Many missionaries are working today to bring the Good News to our world just as St. Patrick did. We can pray and make sacrifices so that their hard work will lead many people to know and love Jesus.
