A few thoughts on Saint Patrick

There are many things about Saint Patrick truly amazing:

He was a Brit:
For all the animosity that the Irish hold for Britian, the man himself was a Briton.

He was enslaved by the Irish:
He was kidnapped at an early age and brought to Ireland as a slave and sheep herder.

He found his faith as a Sheppard:
While tending sheep I guess you have allot of time to reflect.

He escaped and came back to Ireland:
His mission was to bring the Gospel to Ireland as a priest.

He started over 300 churches
For anyone who’s been involved in starting one, 300 is unimaginable.

He died on March 17th:
I guess that’s where the St. Patrick Day celebration comes from.  He lived in the 5th century.
