I made this same point recently, but others below have taken it to flights of blarney. According to Oracle I.e. Wiki, Patrick was a non-practicing Christian when kidnapped age 16 fromRoman Britain, and then enslaved in Ireland for 6 years until he escaped to France where he was ordained by St. Martin de Tours. He then went back to Ireland to preach the Christian gospel. Patrick is indeed the perfect saint to represent the plight of all immigrants, enslaved, trafficked, and exploited. Isn't that good enough?
The fact that Through Patrick's mission, Ireland became the land of saints and scholars and kept the light of learning alight throughout the long dark ages after the collapse of the Roman Empire in the West, then shared that learning throughout Europe thus triggering Humanism and the Renaissance.
The comments below take a dim view of such activity however. A great man once Wrote that Leadership and Learning were indispensable to each other. Too many people allow themselves the comfort of opinion, without the discomfort of thought. Tweet that, Mr. T.
