Contrary to popular opinion, not only wasn't St. Patrick Irish by birth, but he wasn't even the first Roman Catholic Bishop appointed by the Roman Catholic Church to operate in Ireland. The first Roman Catholic Bishop appointed by the Roman Catholic Church to operate in Ireland was Saint Palladius who was born in an unknown date in the early Fifth Century and died between 450 to 461. St. Palladius was born in Gaul (Now called France) during the final century of the Ancient Roman Empire. Like St. Patrick, St. Palladius' family were Ancient Roman Empire nobility with links to the Roman Catholic Church. Palladius was the son of Exuperantius of Poitiers, Gaul (France) who was appointed by the Ancient Roman Emperor to be praetorian prefecture of the Gauls. Exuperantius of Poitiers, Gaul was killed by his own armed forces soldiers in an act of mutiny on 424. Upon his father's death, he traveled to Rome, got married and produced a child. He then abandoned his wife, gave away his daughter to a nunnery in Cicely, Rome (Italy) before getting ordained as a priest and traveled to Ireland. St. Palladius rose from Roman Catholic Priest to Roman Catholic Bishop several years or several decades before St. Patrick rose from Roman Catholic Priest to Roman Catholic Bishop. And some Roman Catholic Scholars got St. Patrick and St. Palladius confused to such a degree, that there may have been two different versions of St. Patrick operating at the same exact time---The official St. Patrick and an earlier imposter St. Patrick. Still, if there were one version of St. Patrick or two different versions of St. Patrick, today is the day to honor them both.
And as I'm lost in thought on St. Patrick's Day, here are some photos of Zoe Kravitz.
