Today on the 17th of March, Irland, Britain and some other countries are celebrating St Patrick’s day. St Patrick is one of my favourite saints. He was born in England, was brought as a slave to Ireland, fled from there and later returned to Ireland, to bring the Irish people the good news of the Gospel. He is a very beloved patron saint of Ireland.
I can highly recommend this video about the life of St Patrick:
There is also an animation film of the life of St Patrick for the younger children:
