Who Is St. Patrick?
St. Patrick was born in Britain during the 4th century. He was kidnapped and enslaved by Irish raiders when he was a teenager. He did escape after six years and became a priest in Britain, he later chose to return to Ireland as a missionary, in order to help spread the teachings of Christianity to pagans.
According to Irish folklore, he used a shamrock to explain the Christian concept of Trinity to the Irish. In spite of opposition from pagan leaders, he continued to evangelize for thirty years while baptizing newly converted Christians and establishing monasteries, churches, and schools. He died on March 17th and was canonized by the local church.
St. Patrick's Day was first publicly celebrated in Boston in 1737, nearly 200 years later, the first St. Patrick's Day parade in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931. Through the years, along with legendary shamrocks, many symbols were included in festivities that are reflective of Ireland's folklore, culture, and national identity (think leprechauns, ethnic cuisine, and wearing green).
