Shamrocks, glitter, lots of green, parades, traditions, parties, and stories of leprechauns are what come to mind when I hear Saint Patrick’s Day. On March 17th, people all over the world will celebrate the death of Saint Patrick, the man who brought Christianity to Ireland. Patrick was kidnapped at the age of sixteen, but he managed to escape and board a ship to Britain. Once there, he studied to be a priest. He then returned to Ireland and used his newfound love of the Church to teach others, which is how Christianity spread to Ireland.
