Thread Name: BS: What Do you know about St. Patrick?
Subject: RE: BS: What Do you know about St. Patrick?
He was indeed English, and I believe kidnapped by the Irish and forced into labor as a shepard. He eventually made an escape where he nearly starved to death, but the experience help him find and draw upon inner strength and God to help him survive. He made it back to England and later returned to Ireland...... and made a huge impact!

Today we celebrate St Patricks Day in America by drinking green beer, which Im certain even St Patrick would consider an abomination to do to perfectly good brew!

That's all I know! cheers, Nan
