When you find an image of St Patrick, it’s always with a shamrock in his hand.
He was a slave in the beginning of his life, so you can imagine he wasn’t a big fan of it. He was the first important person in the Catholic Church who openly opposed to it. Because he was a slave, it wasn’t hard for him to tell the people of the suffering slaves had to endure.
Patrick died on March 17th 461 in Saul, Downpatrick, where he had built his first church.
With his death, the Irish stopped slavery, human sacrificing was unthinkable from then on.
