Saint Patrick was a very strong, masculine man.
He wasn’t an effeminate type.
He was captured at 15-16 years old we don’t know where he was captured from but it was Irish Pirates and sold as a slave.
He tended sheep there for 6 years.
St Patrick believed he was suffering b/c he wasn’t saying enough prayers.
He then said he prayed 100 times a day.
He would go out into the snow and pray.
This is when he had his major conversion.
The Lord told him how to escape and he did, then he managed to get on a boat to France.
