Buried beneath the Shamrocks and Leprechauns -
Lies the true story of a man determined to save the people who made him a slave.
Over sixteen hundred years ago, a young teenage boy living in 4th c. Roman Britain named Patrick was kidnapped by Celtic raiders.
He was forced to live as a slave in Ireland. After several years of hardship, this young slave escaped and eventually made his way back home.
It was at this point that God called Patrick to return to the spiritually dark land where he was once a slave, in order to take the gospel of Christ to the people of Ireland.
The preaching of Patrick was used by Almighty God to transform many of the Irish people from idol worshiping pagans into servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.
God empowered him to overcome powerful Druid occult leaders, bloodthirsty tribal chieftains, and a host of other dangers to help set the people of Ireland free through the message of Salvation.
Seldom in church history has any missionary been blessed with a more fruitful ministry.
This is a true story of the heroic martyr who loved Jesus more than his own life.
The work and legacy of Saint Patrick has long been obscured by myths and legends.
For this reason, most Christians living today know little of the actual exploits of this fascinating hero from Church history.
St. Patrick's 'ridding Ireland of snakes and serpents' is one of the many myths and legends:
But this is a story representing that St. Patrick did indeed help to rid Ireland of the 'Serpent of old' (the devil).
- Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world...
- Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
The Life and Legacy of Saint Patrick
by Michael J. McHugh (Author)
The story of how God used this simple but courageous man to turn the hearts of many Irish people from pagan darkness to living faith, will inspire Christians in the twenty-first century to be faithful to the Great Commission.
The Great Commission of Christ:
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." (Matthew 28:19)
