Spotlight: Who is Saint Patrick?

Spotlight: Who is Saint Patrick?

Saint Patrick is one of the strongest examples in life that it is not what you start out life as, as determining where you end up. As a religious figure Staint Patrick is widely respected by Christian believers. He was born in Britain. He is more closely attributed to Ireland, where he past away. He was an atheist as a child and as he matured, so did his religious beliefs. He went on to preach moral values and spirituality, becoming very popular in Ireland.

The Shamrock is a symbol of the holiday, mostly because the three leaf clover of spring is used to preach the importance of the Holy Trinity, how according the believers that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are sourced of one entity.

The Saint’s autobiographical work titled “Confessio” has been a source of inspiration for many.
