Examiner.com article: Who was St. Patrick?

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “Who was St. Patrick?

As you might imagine, this article presents some of the background information about the real Patrick. Legend says that Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, but what did he really do?

My article is a little different than my earlier post here. The article includes this quote written by Patrick himself:

“Therefore, indeed, I cannot keep silent, nor would it be proper, so many favours and graces has the Lord deigned to bestow on me in the land of my captivity. For after chastisement from God, and recognizing him, our way to repay him is to exalt him and confess his wonders before every nation under heaven.”
