The True Patrick of Ireland

It has been commonly thought that Patrick of Ireland was a Roman Catholic, and I suppose there are some who believe he was Irish.  The facts are a little different than what many would think, however.  He was neither Irish nor a Roman Catholic.  He was a son of a deacon of the ancient church of Britain (never a part of the Roman Catholic Church), captured and enslaved among the Irish he managed to escape back to his own people only to be compelled by the leading of the Holy Ghost to return to Ireland as a missionary. 

We also know that he was not a Roman Catholic from these simple, yet self-explanatory lines written by him:

I would not work my soul to save,
For that my Lord hath done;
But I would work like any slave
For love of God’s dear Son.

Patrick of Ireland; His Written Testimony and Song

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
