We call on Saint Patrick to intercede for us with these prayer cards and novenas. Patrick's life was a constant demonstration of following the will of God and tenacity in that mission. Captured as a slave at 16 years old in Roman-controlled Britain, he endured physical hardships most of us can only imagine. Eventually, he felt called to evangelize the pagan island of Ireland. As bishop in Ireland, he was responsible for the conversion of many and booming vocations in that country. Despite heave opposition, the Lord worked through steadfast Patrick to change the course of Irish history.
