The saint of second chances

We recall Patrick's birth and upbringing in Britain, his slavery in Ireland, and his triumphant (though not entirely smooth) return to Eire when he was in his forties, and wish you a happy St Paddy's day. Patrick is one of the first persons in recorded history to denounce slavery. Patrick is the saint of second chances.
