To add to the festivities of St. Patrick's Day being celebrated by almost everyone, I thought I would share the story of St. Patrick.

That description is true, but it does not begin to relate the effects of what St. Patric did. The ramifications of his story reached and shaped the whole world.

Read How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill for a better idea of the events he put in motion.
