Saint Patrick was quite successful at winning converts in Ireland. And this fact upset the Celtic
Druids who dominated the region. Patrick was arrested several times, but escaped each time. In a spiritual
power encounter at Tara, he defeated the druid high priest. This started the conversion of all Ireland. His
Celtic-model church and monasteries finished the job.
Today, our culture is becoming occult and druid once again, because
we Christians of today have forgotten our early Christian roots. Saint Patrick preached the gospel, healed the
sick and cast out devils, just like Jesus of Nazareth and all the apostles did. We are called by Jesus to preach the
gospel with signs and wonders following, just like we did in the early centuries when we turned the world upside down.
