Arrow Right St Patrick's Life Including Capture and Slavery

St Patrick's Day: The Dramatic Story of Saint Patrickís Life Including Capture and Slavery

While St Patrickís Day celebrations will be smaller this year due to coronavirus, millions of people around the world will celebrate Irish traditions and culture, as well as Saint Patrick himself


Daily Mirror UK, 17 MAR 2020

Happy St Patrick's Day!

17 March is normally a day when people don green clothes, Guinness hats adorned with shamrocks and suspicious Irish accents.

This year public celebrations in Ireland and the UK will be severely curtailed due to coronavirus and the governmentís social distancing advice.

So while people mark St Patrickís Day 2020 in their own homes rather than pubs and bars, whatís the story behind the individual who the day is named after?

Well his life is much more dramatic - and darker in places - than you might imagine, given the modern day festivities.

Two important things to know first about Saint Patrick

He isnít technically a Saint
He isnít actually Irish.


The person we now know as Saint Patrick was named Maewyn Succat when he was born into a wealthy family in AD387 in Kilpatrick, Scotland. His father, Calphurnius, was a priest from a Roman family while his mother, Conchessa, was a close relative of Saint Martin of Tours.

Pontius, Maewynís grandfather, was also a priest.

In AD403, when Maewyn was just 16, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken to Gaelic Ireland. Once there he was sold into slavery and given a job of herding sheep.

His slave master during this time was a high priest in Druidism which was extremely popular in Ireland in the early fifth century.

Maewyn is said to have prayed to God more than 100 times a day and saw his slavery as a test of faith. After a few years living in slavery he had a dream in which God told him he was set to leave Ireland by ship.

This dream emboldened Maewyn to escape from his captors around the year AD408, making his way back to Britain.

Now a free man again he decided to enter the priesthood - following in the footsteps of his grandfather.

For his training Maewyn headed to France, and he made his way up the ranks in the church before being ordained as a bishop in AD432.

Ever since his days in slavery he believed it was his mission to help convert Ireland to Christianity, and soon after becoming a bishop he was sent to Ireland by Pope Celestine I to do just that.

Itís said he converted thousands of pagan Irish to Christianity with preachings and baptisms. Maeywn used spiritual symbols already in place in Ireland and incorporated them into Christian worship. An example of that is the Celtic cross which was created by merging the Christian cross with traditional Irish sun-worshiping symbols.

Legend also says he used Irelandís native shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to those he preached to, as well as performing miracles and building churches.

Maywen died at Saul in Ireland on
17 March 461. He was later buried in Downpatrick, County Down.

St Patrickís Name

Itís unclear exactly when Maewyn Succat became Patricius or Patrick, however itís thought he adopted the name during his religious journeys or when he became ordained as a priest.
Since then heís gone on to become the patron saint of Ireland.

However, like many priests and other religious icons from that period, he was never formally canonised by a pope as there was no formal process in place. Instead the title was unofficially given to individuals seen as martyrs or extraordinarily holy, but in the eyes of the church he is not officially a Saint.

St Patrickís Day Celebrations

In Ireland March 17 is a religious holiday, with families traditionally attending church in the morning. Other rituals include eating a traditional meal of cabbage and corned beef.

In other parts of the world itís become a more secular celebration with less focus on religion and more on Irish culture and heritage. Parades also take place in Ireland and around the world.

HAPPY St. Patrick’s Day








The Demon Drink


An old drunk is on his way into a bar when a nun standing outside the bar suddenly speaks to him. “Your drinking is the easy road to evil and damnation. Drink will pollute your body and soul. Give up the foul spirits and live a better life!”

The drunk looks at her and asks, “How do you know that drinking is so bad for you?”

The nun looks puzzled and shrugs. The drunk asks,

“Have you ever even tried a drink?” The nun admits she hasn’t, so the drunk tells her, “Listen, I’ll go into the bar and order myself a drink and I’ll get one for you too. I’ll bring it out here and you can taste it yourself and see that alcohol is nothing bad.”

The nun reluctantly agrees, but says, “I don’t want anybody out here getting the wrong idea about me, so would you mind bringing me the drink in a paper cup?”.

The drunk agrees to this and goes inside. At the bar he tells the bartender “Give me a double shot of whiskey, and a second half shot in a paper cup.”


The bartender groans and says: “Is that bloody nun out there again?”



Cavan Jokes


People from this county are allegedly especially flinty and careful with their money.

- Where does a Cavan father bring his kids on Christmas Eve?
To Santa’s grave.

- Why does a Cavan man get married in a farmyard? So the hens can eat the rice.

- How was the Grand Canyon formed? A Cavan man dropped a nickel down a rabbit hole.

- A Cavan man and his wife were at the fair and a pilot was offering a free flight to anyone who would stay quiet while he did loop the loops in the small plane. If they screamed it would cost $50.

- The Cavan couple climbed on board and the pilot did his worst to complete silence from the back of the plane.

- Finally he landed and he complimented the Cavan man on the two-way radio for staying quiet.
“Ah now, I nearly shouted when the wife fell out," the Cavan man replied.



Kerry Jokes

Ireland’s smartest rural county with a reputation for cleverness.

Question asked of a Kerry man:

- “Is it true when you ask a Kerry man a question he answers by asking another?

Kerry man: “Who told you that”?

- The Kerry man told his friend he’d invented a spaceship to go to the sun:

“But you’ll burn up its way too hot.”

“No problem we’ll go at night,” the Kerry man replied.

- Two Kerry men got lost on a dark night and stumbled into a graveyard.

“Where the hell are we,” said one.

“No problem I know by this sign post,” said the other looking at a gravestone “it says 'Miles from Dublin'”

- An unpopular Kerry man died and the priest could get no one to say a kind word. Eventually, after an awkward silence a little man at the back of the church volunteered and said. “His brother was worse”


Cork Jokes

- Cork people are said to have high opinions of themselves as in “Help, help, my son the doctor is drowning.”

- A brick on a Cork man’s head is called “an ext
ension.”
