Saint Patrick dies
- In 461 A.D, on this day, Saint Patrick, Christian missionary, bishop, and apostle of Ireland, dies at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland.
- He was born in Great Britain, probably in Scotland, to a well-to-do Christian family of Roman citizenship. He is known for the Confessio, a book he wrote during his last years.
- He worked as a herder in Ireland, turning to a deepening religious faith for comfort when Saint Patrick was captured and enslaved at age 16 by Irish marauders for the next six years.
- One night, he heard in a dream the counsel of a voice. He escaped and found passage on a ship to Britain, where he was eventually reunited with his family.
