03/13/18: Who was St. Patrick?

So what is St. Patrick’s Day all about? Dr. Karen Allen shared the results of her

research concerning this day that has become a major day of celebration. Saint Patrick

was a fifth‐century Romano‐British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as

the “Apostle of Ireland”, he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, although he technically

was never officially canonized as a Saint. Several legends are attributed to St. Patrick

including: (1) Saint Patrick teaching the Irish about the doctrine of the Holy Trinity by

showing people the shamrock, a three‐leafed plant, using it to illustrate the Christian

teaching of three persons in one God and (2) Banishing all snakes in Ireland by chasing

them into the sea after they attacked him during a 40‐day fast he was undertaking on

top of a hill. No matter who or what he was, we now have a special day that encourages

drinking a lot of green beer.
