Happy St. Patrick's Day! Some Cool Facts....Posted Tuesday, March 17, 2009, at 9:38 AM
When Maewyn was 16, hoards of Irish raiders, called Brythonic Warriors, came to his village and made slaves of the young and able.
He was recruited to be a shepherd and keeper of flocks of animals, to King Ceretic of Alt Clut
As time grew along, he would pray for release, and God told him he would find a way back to his village. He eventually broke free, and returned to his village when he was around 22.
Maewyn felt the call of God to go back to Ireland and preach the gospel to the druids of that day.
The Druids even prophesied about Maewyn coming to them:
Across the sea will come Adze-head, crazed in the head,
his cloak with a hole for the head, his staff bent at the head.
He will chant impieties from a table in front of his house,
And the people will answer: "so be it, so be it."
There are many legends about St.Patrick, one is he taught of the Trinity by using the 3 leaf clover.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Patrick passed away in 461 AD, after leading many to Christ among whom it is rumored the King,
Ceretic of Alt Clut the one who raided his village, came to Christ though Maewyn.
I will leave you with a prayer by St. Patrick, part of the prayer called St. Patrick's Breastplate.
I bind unto myself today
The strong Name of the Trinity,
by invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.
Christ be with Me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in the mouth of the friend and stranger
Be blessed today, Happy St. Patrick's Day.
