The Truth about St. Patrick

St. Patrick is a person that lots of people know the big facts but not the small facts.

Even though St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, he was not born here. He was born in an area near Scotland or Wales sometime around 370-390 AD. You might think that Saint Patrick was a saint, but he was never canonized. He is probably called Saint because he spread Christianity around Ireland. Another thing that’s not true about St. Patrick is his name. His name was Maewyn Succat his name turned to Patrick later on.

When I was in this tiny town we went to a cathedral that was built on top of the Rock of Cashel, also know as St. Patrick’s Rock.
