Who was Saint Patrick?

Patrick was a 5th century Roman-British Christian Bishop & missionary in Ireland. Most of what is known about the Saint comes from the Declaration, which was written by Patrick himself. He was born in the 4th century into a wealthy family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather a priest. According to his writings, he was kidnapped at age 16 and made to be a slave in Gaelic Ireland. He said that he spent 6 years as a slave until he escaped, as a direction from God, fleeing to the coast where a ship was waiting to take him home. After returning home, Patrick announced during his captivity he had found God, and he then became a priest.
