Saint of the week:
This weeks Saint of the week will appear in three parts to honor the extraordinary life of St. Patrick. As Catholics we should use his example to inspire us in our daily lives.
It's wonderful that St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in so many places. However, did you know that St. Patrick was not born in Ireland? He was born in Briton. His parents were Roman Overseers in Scotland. His first trip to Ireland was not pleasant. He was abducted from his home in Briton by raiders. He was taken to Ireland to be a slave. His duties were difficult as was the lot of all slaves. He was made to tend and herd flocks of sheep. He was a saintly young man, and found strength of faith by praying everyday. He received a vision from God which showed him how to escape his captors. He was reunited with his family in Briton.
This week say a Rosary in his honor as we approach March 17th
