The 10 of Spades

Saint Patrick

When he was about 14 he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop. He is known for his successful conversion of Ireland to Christianity. By the eighth century he had come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland.
