As indicated by various variants of his biography it is said that he was conceived in Britain, around 385AD. His folks Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman nationals living in either Scotland or Wales. As a kid of 14 he was caught and taken to Ireland where he put in six years in servitude crowding sheep. He came back to Ireland in his 30s as a teacher among the Celtic agnostics.

Saint Patrick described himself as a “most humble-minded man, pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker for having chosen him as the instrument whereby multitudes who had worshiped idols and unclean things had become the people of God.”

Numerous people ask the question ‘Why is the Shamrock the National Flower of Ireland ?’ The reason is that St. Patrick utilized it to disclose the Holy Trinity to the agnostics.
