Saint Patrick, also known as â??Patrick of Irelandâ?? or â??The

Apostle of Irelandâ?? was a 5th Century Christian Missionary. He

was captured by a group of Irish pirates at the age of sixteen, but

was released after six years. While in captivity, he worked as a

shepherd, which helped his strengthen his relationship with God. He

claimed that he used to return the gifts given to him from wealthy

women, did not accept payments for baptisms nor for ordaining

priests and paid back for the gifts of kings and judges.
