Patrick - Patron Saint of Ireland
Born in Britain, 4th century,© 2022 Walterrean Salley
Then kidnapped when he was sixteen,
And brought to Ireland as a slave,
Where quite deprived of rightful means.
But as fate had it for Patrick,
He would 'escape' captivity -
And by the Providence of God,
Pursue his sacred destiny.
Patrick - patron saint of Ireland,
And missionary on a mission,
Would later return to Ireland -
Turning Irishes to Christians.
Having died in 461,
Religious services and feasts
Would venerate his godly life,
And honor his mortal release.
ENDNOTE: St. Patrick was born in Roman Brittain, kidnapped at age 16, and taken to Ireland as a slave. Later, he escaped his captivity, and returned to his family in Britain. As a missionary, he went back to Ireland, and converted many Irishmen to Christianity.
