Raised an English Christian, Patrick was captured by Scots, Celts from Ireland, and was carried to Ireland to be a swineherd. He escaped and found himself in France where he went to a monastery on an island of the Mediterranean Sea, but he finally went home to England again to see his family. One night he had a dream in which the babies of Ireland pled with him to come back to their country and tell them about Christ. He returned to France and studied for a number of years in a monastery and was eventually sent out as a missionary to the people among whom he had once been a slave.
