Transcript of St. Patrick Prezi

by Katie Mialaret T3401 & Alyssa Mulligan T3402 St Patrick Slavery Spirituality He is the patron saint of Ireland. Died on March 17th Life In 431, he was appointed bishop of Ireland . He founded monasteries and converted thousands of people Is now one of the world's most popular saints Was born in Bannavem Taberniae, England, in 386 Spirituality After Death Father-Calphurnius, was a deacon He was never officially canonized in the Catholic Church but he is on the list of saints Mother-Conchessa, was a relative of patron St. Martin of Tour . When St. Patrick was 16 years old, he was captured by Irish pirates and sold into slavery He worked as a herdsman, remaining a captive for six years His faith grew while he was captive and prayed daily that he would be able to go home Work Cited Death St.Patrick died in AD 460 on March 17 Prior to the 1940s it is believed that he died in 420 and had lived in the first half of the fifth century "The Two Patricks", published in 1942 by T. F. O'Rahilly, caused enormous controversy by proposing that there had been two "Patricks", Palladius and Patrick, and that what we now know of St. Patrick was in fact in part a conscious effort to blend the two into one hagiographic personality." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick http://www.biography.com/people/st-patrick-9434729 I saw a man coming, as it were from Ireland. His name was Victoricus, and he carried many letters, and he gave me one of them. I read the heading: "The Voice of the Irish". As I began the letter, I imagined in that moment that I heard the voice of those very people who were near the wood of Foclut, which is beside the western sea—and they cried out, as with one voice: "We appeal to you, holy servant boy, to come and walk among us." In his own words Saint Patrick wrote two letters. They are the Declaration and the Letter to the soldiers of Coroticus Symbols The shamrock, was a sacred plant in ancient Ireland because it symbolized the rebirth of spring. By the seventeenth century, the shamrock had become a symbol of emerging Irish nationalism. As the English began to seize Irish land and make laws against the use of the Irish language and the practice of Catholicism, many Irish poeple began to wear the shamrock as a symbol of their pride in their heritage and their displeasure with English rule.
Belief in leprechauns probably stems from Celtic belief in fairies, who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure.Leprechauns had nothing to do with St. Patrick or the celebration of St. Patrick's Day, a Catholic holy day. http://www.history.com/topics/st-patricks-day-symbols-and-traditions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick
