St. Patrick was born in Roman Britain but history doesn’t represent the exact birthplace but is told that he hailed from Glannoventa in Cumbria . Though he was from a religious family he was not an immediate believer of Christ.

The life of St. Thomas is depicted in his book called ‘the Confession of Saint Patrick‘, where he explains that he was captured and kidnapped by Irish pirates at the age of sixteen.

This incident strengthened his relationship with God. He had a spiritual development when connecting with God and explains how the Lord had mercy on his youth and ignorance, and forgave his sins upon repentance.

St. Thomas started to believe in Christ and converted to Christianity. He had escaped from his captivity after six years with God’s command and reached home where he continued to study Christianity and built monasteries, schools, and churches and died on March 17, 460 A.D.

St. Thomas’s works include the Confession, a spiritual autobiography depicting his early and present life, and his Letter to Coroticus, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish Christians.
