Saint Patrick

 

 

The legend tells us that Patrick was an English or a Scottish young man captured by Irish pirates and then let free…

 

He converted to Christianism , was ordained and then made bishop by Pope Celestino who endorsed him with the very difficult  task of spreading Christianity in Ireland.

 

Saint Patrick with snakes

 

Or the one that sees St Patrick digging such a deep well  to reach the Purgatory (St Patrick’s well).

 

 

 

He created what is nowadays known as  #CelticChristianism and  many legends were created around him such as the one that sees Patrick that sends snakes away from Ireland.

 

The clover, the so much renown symbol of Ireland, was used by St Patrick to explain the hard concept of Trinity to the ancient populations and is still.. the image of this beautiful green land.
