May St. Patrick guard you wherever you go and guide you in whatever you do... And may His loving protection be a blessing to you always.
Life of St. Patrick: Born in Britain of a Romanized family. At age 16 he was torn by Irish raiders from the villa of his father, Calpurnius, a deacon and minor local official, and carried into slavery in Ireland. He spent six bleak years there as a herdsman, during which he turned with fervour to his faith.
