Patricius of Britain was the privileged son of a Roman official. At the age of sixteen, he was suddenly taken and enslaved by foreign pirates from Hibernia—a land now known as Ireland. For six years the newly named Patrick suffered at the hands of cruel masters and was abandoned to isolation as a shepherd. He endured the extreme weather, starvation, and loneliness. Yet, in the midst of these trials, God was preparing Patrick to evangelize a nation.
