Regarding St. Patrick

Few people are aware that I am actually more Irish than I am Italian. I’m at least 1/4, and possibly 3/8, Irish. Which makes me more Irish than St. Patrick himself! That’s right, St. Patrick was not Irish at all. He was born in Scotland and then at a young age moved with his family to England where, still relatively young, was captured and kidnapped by Irish pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland. He later escaped and returned to his parents in England, eventually being called by God to return to the land of his slavery to deliver the message of Christ. He planted 700 new churches and trained 1,000 pastors.  Read more about him HERE and HERE.
