The Real Patrick

Today is St. Patrick’s Day.  March 17 was made an annual feast day in the early seventeenth century and has become a celebration of Irish Culture in general.  Though much of what is associated with Patrick is not really true, he is one of my favourite Christians of all time.  

Patrick was a born-again believer in Jesus Christ.  He was not Protestant or Catholic but was a missionary sent out by the ancient Christian church.  He was a true believer, a Bible preacher, and believed in believer’s baptism.  

As a result of his ministry, thousands of converts were baptized, hundreds of churches were started, missionaries were sent out, and many kings were saved.  Ireland changed from primarily a place of pagan worship to a centre of Christianity, largely through the influence of Patrick.
