Tt« SEVENTEENTH OF MARCH. This
m\3u*}i P f atrlck '» Hay, and it is worth
while that we should remember it
Many people think he was un Irishman;
but here is his entire history. Saint
Patrick waa born A.D.873, in Bonavem,
a village of North Brittany, in Uaul
wherein waa a tort called, by St. Fiach'
Holy Tower. His parents were respec
tive; his father was Calpurnius, a dea
con, son of Fotitus, a priest, both bavins
received holy orders with the consent o*!
their wives. His mother was Conchesa
said to be niece of St. .Martin of Tour*,'
His brother was Kan nanus, and bin "sis
ters were Lupita, Tigris, Liemania
Cinne-iiaomli, anil Dareri-a. The Hume
he received al hi-, baptiam waa Buocath
or"fortis in hello," as some will hove it!
Pope Celesline gave him the nime Pa
trieius, or "noble." He was admired by
all who knew him, for his mildness and
purity of morals. He wus brought to
Ireland a captive, in the reign ofNlail
to* Ureal, in tho sixteenth year of hi-,
age, and sold a slave to Mileho, a petty
prince of Dalra.lie, in Ulster, who gave
him tin- tare of it is flocks at the foot of
Slieve-Mis, where he had an opportu
nity of learning the language, and ha
bituating himself to the customs of the
country.- According to his own and St
I-larch's account, be prayed many time.s
during the day, and as often at night
the severity ol the frost, snow, or rain'
never prevented him from performing
his duty to his god. In the seventh year
of his captivity, being warned, i'u a
dream, to return to his own eouutry, he
accordingly set oil', and reached the sea
shore at Ban try Bay, iv Cork, whore
there was it vessel ready to sail. The
captain at liist refused,"but afterwards
consented to receive him. After three
days' voyage he arrived in Atiuilaiiia, in
France, and Ihonce proceeded to Brit
tany, his native country, where he ar
rived, completely exhausted with hunger
and fatigue, from traveling twenty-eight
days ihrouglideserts. Hiving remain
ed some time at home, it appeared to
him in a dream, that he saw a man from
Ireland, handing him a number of let
ters, one of whieli lie reud, commencing
with the words "Vox Hibeinicoruni."
While leading the letter, he thought he
heard the voice of the inhabitants ol
Foclut, a forest in Tyruwley, iv the
County Mayo, eiitre.ii.ng him to go
among them, which affected hhn so
much that he awoke, Mov, d by this
vision, he lesolved to prepare himself
for Ihe conversion of the island. He
accordingly went to the celebrated mon
astery, near routs, where he received
the habit and tonsure from St. Martin,
bishop of that city, and uncle to bit
mother, Ciuchessa. Having spent some '
time al Touis, St. Martin having died,
he thence went to Rome, and Joined th* '
regulars of St. John of Laterau, where
he acquired great knowledge of ecclesi
astical mil lire and monastic discipline.
He was afterward* induced to go to '
Auxerre, to visit St. German, bishop ol ;
that place, to burn of him, by virtue
and example, how to conduct his im
portant undertaking. He afterward*
went to the Convent of Lain-;, where
he 3penl nine years, and then returned
to Auxerie, Where, having heard of the
death of Palladia*, he repaired to Home,
and wus consecrated bishop of all Ire
land by Pop., Celcstine, and in the year
following, being the first nf Hope Distil*,
attended by twenty priests for Ihe Irish
mission, he visited St. German, who
made him presents of books, chalices,
aud everything nccis-ary for the Ctitho-
Jie worship and ministry. Everything
for the voyage being ready, th* saint set
sail, and arrived in "Cii>.eh-('uallan,"
in Leinster, now the County WicUlow.
This occurred in the fourth year of the
reign of Ltioghnio; there was besides a
king in every province. The first con
vert was Smell, of ihe royal nice of the
kings of Leinster, who wus afterwards
enrolled among the saints.
The saint was attacked by Ihe Pagans
nt Kath-lnblieir, at the month of the
river Bray, ami obliged to return to *•*.
He reached litis I'hailruig, near Dublin,
where he rested, und thence sailed b>
the Bay of Dundrum, in the County
Down. Dlohu, Ihe lord of the place,
hearing lliat pirate* entered his tern
tory, went out t.. repel them, bin struck
atotico with resp.cl t'.i'St. Patrick, who
preached to him Iho word of Clod, he
wa* baptized with all his family, and,
In gratitude to th* saint, he gave him
bis granary t«> serve as a church, which
was called Sgiibol I'hadruig.
After thistlie satut set olt'to Cloneboy,
In Dairaidbe, In Ulster, where bk
old master Mileho lived, in order to con
vert him. But he would not be con
verted by one who was once his slave,
and in a rag* threw himself Into a Hre

He was burnt wilh all his family, except

I'l'om this place he travelled to the ba
rony ol Clare, in the County Gulway,
and baptised Duach, son of Brian, and
founded the church Domnach-Phadrig
near Lough Hacket. He proceeded
through Psrtry and Umulie, in Mayo,
where he founded the church Acha'dh
I'Obhiur, of which St. Senaeh was the
bishop. After this he spent tbe Lent in
contemplation and prayer on Croagh-
Pbadrlg, the former nuu'ie of which was
"Cruachiin Aichle, 1 ' or Mount Eagle,ln
the same county, anil having celebrated
Easter at the church just named, he
went to Tir Amalgaidh (Tirawley,)
where he converted the seven sons of
Amalgaidh and 1,20(i persons. He erect
ed a church; of this he made Mansuer
nis bishop. On the bank of the river
Aloy,he bniltachureh called Kill-Aladh
(Klllaia), to preside over which he con
secrated Murcadt.ch bishop.
Having founded forty seven churches
111 Connauglit, the saint returned to
Sligo, passed through the territories of
Cuirbre, who opposed him, as did Co
nall, though one of his converts. How
ever, he arrived ut mis Eoghan finish
Owen), Whete he baptized Eoghan, tho
prince, und ail his family, and founded
two ehurche.-r, Domnach-Mor Muigh (of
which Mac Carthan was first bishop)
and Domnnch Bile. Having thence
crossed Lough Foyle, he passed through
Kitieacta, where he baptized Seadhia
ISheunu) und his family; his son was
bishop of Dulelk. In Meuth.
Having left this place, the apostle
journeyed to Coleraine, in Dalraida, in
Down, where he met tbe twelve broth
ers, sons of Caolbach, of the race of the
Claiina Rory; of these the chief were
Saran, who Opposed him, and Conla,
who was converted l.y him, Here be
built a church Citmuir for canons regu
lar, also the churches: Doninach-Mor,
liath-Lithe, Tulchaiu, Esplc-lanlc,
Gleann, Itnteach, Cluana. The saint
preached on the borders of Lough
Xeagh, where having raised some
churches, b* established the bishopric
of "O'Cane's chieftaincy," which he
gave to Killinn, and another in Tyrone,
over which he set. St. Coluinh.' He
founded the see of Cloglicr, of which he
was bishop. Thereupon be went to
Drum-Slleacb, where he organized a
city, and made it the metropolitan see.
at tlie request of Dnire, who was tbe
prince of tlie territory.
The saint, in order the more easily to
supply the want of ministers, introduced
the Roman alphabet to those who were
lo enter holy orders. Some obscure
writers assert lhat he at this time went
lo Britain to resist the Pelagian heresy.
Hut the fact is that he attended St. Ger
iiian of Auxerre, in a crusade against
l'elagius, sotuo time before he was con
secrated bishop for the mission of Ire
land. This appear* from Lantgan and
oilier distinguished authorities. Having
held v synod in Armagh, he started for
Lelnstec, built the chinch of Blle-Tor
tan, in Meath, whence he traveled
to l'.ailo-atha-cliath (Dublin) where he
baptised all the inhabitants, with Alpin
their king, and near the fountain, in
'which he Itpptised them, he built a
church, named after himself.
The saint having converted the two
princes, sons of Duulatig, built two
churches, Kill-Atixil lover which he
placed Auxiliusiand Kili-Cuillin, whose
Brst bishop was laaernln ; ha then visit
ed Lcix, Ossory, and Hy-Kinscallach.
In these he raised seventy churches,
and baptised Criomthan (Crsevan), king
of Leinster, who gave land on which to
build a church, over which was placed
Fiech, as bishop of Sletly, who acted in
the capacity of Archbishop of Leinster,
though not such.
After preaching with effect in Lein
ster he then proceeded to Minister,
where he baptised King Aongus and all
his household : during the baptism of
the king, tho saint's stuff pierced his
foot, but he never complained, ns he
thought It belonged to the ceremony.
He held a Synod at Cashel, und confirm
ed in the pOa*SSSlon of (he churches
they hud founded, Saints Ailbe, Deelan,
Kierali anil I bur. He then took leave
of Aongus, and passed through Arudhu,
Limneach, and the Shannon, into Tho
mond, where he converted the inhabit
ants, with Caliban Fioun, their prince ;
ho preached in Kerry, returned by De
sie to Cashel. After a space of seven
yean devoted to the conversion of the
province, the inhabitants, for his servi
ces, undertook to pay him au annual
tribute, calledCalu rhadrlg.
The saint, having dischurged his mis
sion In Minister, returned to lister,
where having spent six yeurs hi visiting
Churches, confirming Christians intheir
faith, and converting those who perse
vered in Idotatory, he resigned the See
of Armagh to Benign us, and withdrew
toSabliail-Phadriiig, 111 Down, to pre
pare for death, as be foresaw his end was
approaching. Here he died in the Lord
attended by St. Tussugh and other holy
persons. His body was interred in

exemption of the country from venom
