How was the time Saint Patrick lived in similar to today?
The Roman Empire was falling: *Illegal immigrants overrunning boarders *Latin Language displaced *Sexual immorality *Exposure of unwanted infants *Violent gladiatorial entertainment *Outsourcing to North Africa *Enormous debt & government *Explosion of welfare & government jobs *Taxes unbearable *Church discouraged political involvement *Military over stretched *Atilla the Hun committed terrorist attacks
Rome pulled its Legions back from the frontier of Britain leaving it to marauding gangs. Patrick was kidnapped as a boy and sold him into slavery in Druid Ireland. He miraculously escaped, only to have at age 40 a divine call to go back as a missionary. He confronted Druid chiefs, baptized 120,000, used the three-leaf clover to teach the Trinity, and founded 300 churches, which in the next century sent missionaries back into Europe!
