Some stories about Is the Patron Saint of Ireland
The patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, is recognised by Christians throughout the world as being an example of the divinity of the Roman Catholic Church. There’s even a little historical evidence to confirm that he was indeed a person that influenced and converted the pagan Irish over to the Christian faith. He had spent some time in the country as a slave and had learnt the language and culture. This gave him a distinct advantage when he arrived. The history of St. Patrick dates all the way back to around the year’s from 500 AD. Roman Britain was over and the Dark ages were in full swing. There are many tales about St Patrick.
A story about St. Patrick is that he visited King Arthur, King of the British, and asked him to convert to Christianity so that his converts would have shelter and safety on this Earth. The legend says that King Arthur declined (earning him the title the Enemy of God) and instead went into hiding to avoid further superstitions. However, this is quite possibly apocryphal and very unlikely.
Other tales include his banishment of all the snakes in Ireland. This is harder to believe as there were no native snakes to begin with. Again it might be that the “snakes” is another word for “pagans”. Lastly there is the tale of the Shamrock and the holy trinity. If he was able to do this it is a first! Many Christian theologians still struggle with it now. Better to buy some ST Patricks Day Gifts from https://www.shamrockgift.com/st-patricks-day and just enjoy the day.
