There are as many different versions of the story of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, as there are people. He is credited with everything from introducing Christianity to Ireland to completely ridding the island of snakes. However, for all the varied and wonderful deeds he is credited with, very little is known about his actual life. We know he was taken captive as a teenager and worked as a shepherd while in captivity for about six years. It was during his period of captivity he deepened his religious beliefs, and turned to God.
He escaped his captors, returned to his native land and after many years of study, was ordained as a priest. Upon returning to Ireland he helped to spread the Christian word on the island of Ireland, ministering to the Christians already living there, and converting the Irish people. St. Patrick was widely known for combining traditional Irish symbols with the Christian symbols to ease the transition to the new religion for the native Irishmen, including superimposing a sun symbol, popular with the old religion of Ireland, onto the Christian cross. This is generally known as the birth of the Celtic cross.
St. Patrick and his deeds are celebrated worldwide, even today, on the anniversary of his death, March 17th.
