The runaway slave who brought the Gospel to Ireland
Following the Spirit to the land of his captivity
Far from home and at the mercy of the pirates who kidnapped him, young Patrick spends his days tending sheep and fighting off wild animals. That is, until he calls out to the God of his youth. Long days spent aching for home become long days talking with Jesus. After six years as a slave, Patrick hears the Holy Spirit urging him to make a daring escape from the Irish tribe and the druid priest who controls their ways. Once back home, Patrick becomes a priest and then a bishop, but he soon makes a stunning announcement: He will return to his kidnappers as a missionary! Find out why the man known as St. Patrick is credited with bringing the Gospel to Ireland in this action-packed episode of the Torchlighters. Read more about St. Patrick on our blog.
