St. Patrick

Lots of pretty weird stuff about the saint can be seen here.

"Saint Patrick had a dream that he must preach the Gospel to the Irish, but Victor had told him to seek an education first. He found his education under Saint Germanus of Auxerre, who lived close to the southern part of Gaul which is next to the Mediterranean sea. (Saint Fiacc does not record other miracles. The town of Saint Patrice near Tours in France claims that it was visited by Saint Patrick in midwinter. He was tired and cold, and the frost-covered thorn tree he slept under burst into soft warm blooms above him. In December every year until the tree was destroyed the "flowers of Saint Patrick" bloomed there. French archaeological and agriculture societies testified to the truth of this phenomenon into this century.) "

According to the linked website, "Saint Patrick told Saint Germanus that he had often heard the voice of the Irish children calling to him, 'Come, Holy Patrick, and make us saved.'"

In the year 2006, psychiatrists would probably all agree that St. Patrick suffered from schizophrenia.

Makes you wonder how many would be saints are taking up bedspace in sanitariums all around the world
