Celebrating St. Patrick
George Washington at Valley Forge

"But after I had come to Ireland, it was then that I was made to shepherd the flocks day after day, so, as I did so, I would pray all the time, right though the day. More and more the love of God and fear of him grew strong in me. And as my faith grew, so the Spirit became more and more active, so that in a single day I would say as many as a hundred prayers, and at night only slightly less. Although I might be staying in a forest or out on a mountainside, it would be the same; even before dawn broke, I would be aroused to pray. In snow, in frost, in rain, I would hardly notice any discomfort, and I was never slack but always full of energy. It is clear to me now, that this was due to the fervor of the Spirit within me.
—St. Patrick (The Confession of Saint Patrick, translated by John Skinner)
 

Vonette BrightSaint Patrick's Contributions to Western (Christian) Civilization

Guest Essay by Dr. Marshall Foster

In the fourth century, pagan Druid pirates from Ireland destroyed a village in England of Celtic Christians, capturing a 16 year- old boy named Patrick. Patrick became a slave tending sheep for a cruel Druid chieftain in the frozen fields of Northern Ireland for six years. The boy, who was a near atheist when he was captured, cried out to God in his despair. He prayed over one hundred times a day and the same all night. He grew close to Christ in his suffering and became repulsed by the witchcraft and even human sacrifice of the Druid priests. Eventually, God provided an escape back to England where Patrick prepared for the ministry.

Three decades later, Patrick returned to evangelize the lost people of Ireland who had enslaved him. Patrick's fearless courage and faith in Christ so impressed the king that he was given free passage to go throughout the Island. Patrick baptized over 120,000 Irish people and planted 300 churches. He evangelized all of Ireland, and in his lifetime he ended the Irish slave trade. Wherever he set up a church he left them with an old Celtic law book, Liber ex Lege Moisi (The Book of the Law of Moses), along with the books of the Gospel. The Liber begins with the Ten Commandments, and continues with selections from Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. From that time forward, this book became the basis of all social organization, including family, economics, welfare, and government. The Liber is the first essential document of liberty that led Christian civilization to far surpass the Roman Empire. The decentralized, God-centered worship of the Christian Celtic peoples avoided hierarchy and gave glory to God. Read On

St. Patrick was a Proto-Protestant!—a Brief Essay

Guest Essay by the late Rev. Professor-Emeritus Dr. Francis Nigel Lee

Guest essay adapted from a piece by Francis Nigel Lee, after James Akin.

St. Patrick was born into a British Christian family circa A.D. 389. His grandfather was a presbyter. His father Calpurnius was a deacon. His real birth-name was the Brythonic Succat. The Irish Gaelicized his name to Padraic, suggesting his originally Brythonic name of Padraig (which too is sometimes found in Erse).

The extant writings of Patrick are in 'Dog-Latin,' which would rather evidence his native language was Brythonic, and Latin (then the international language), only his second tongue. Read On

Dr. Francis Nigel LeeThe Britannic Christian Padraig Converts Ireland

Guest Essay by the late Rev. Professor-Emeritus Dr. Francis Nigel Lee

According to Britain's oldest Historian, the North-Brythonic Celtic Christian Gildas, the Gospel arrived in Britain before 37 A.D. According to Eusebius, Maelgwyn, Isidore, Freculph, Nenni, Baronius, Cressy, Hearne, Rev. Dr. James Ussher, Rev. Dr. John Owen and Rev. Dr. H. Williams—there is some evidence that Joseph of Arimathea preached (and was also buried) in Somerset's Glastonbury.

Also according to the American Rev. Dr. A. Cleveland Coxe in the Ante-Nicene Fathers, there is strong reason to conclude that the great Anti-Roman British General Caradog became a Christian—perhaps even while still in the West of Britain before his exile therefrom in 52 A.D. Too, from A.D. 75 onward, his relative the apparently-Christian Prince Merig is said to have ruled over the Britons from near my own birthplace Kendal in Cumbria's Westmorland. Read On
