THE LEGEND OF SAINT PATRICK is just that––a legend. The name St. Patrick conjures up visions of elves, frisky leprechauns, banshees, three leaved clovers, and Guinness Beer. We start humming Celtic music, we remember the “Fighting Irish” of Notre Dame, and little old nuns with names like “Sister Veronica” come to mind.

But the real Saint Patrick is another story.

Saint Patty’s Day is fast approaching. Christian History Magazine has done us the favor of reproducing one of their archived articles. It  tells the real story of Saint Patrick, missionary to the Irish people, and preacher of the gospel. Read this and discuss with your family around the dinner table.

You won’t be sorry, and neither will your children.
