Later Patrick was ordained a bishop and went back to Ireland to preach the Gospel to the people of Ireland. He arrived in Ireland march 25, 433 where he met a chieftain of one of the tribes. The chief tired to kill Patrick, but he somehow managed to grab hold of the chief's arm and hold it tightly and wouldn't let it go until he promised that he would be nice to him. He began preaching throughout Ireland and converting many people. He and his disciples preached and converted thousands and began building churches all over the country.
This meant that all the police could do was search the crime scene for any evidence that could be seen with the naked eye. No magnifying equipment was available to search for tiny clues. Clues were found at the crime scene. A bloody cloth was found at one of the victims' body, however this was useless to the police, as they could not analyse the blood on the cloth that could have made that catching the killer was possible. The note written on the wall could not have been fingerprinted for clues because this technology was not available.
Many miracles have happened at this church where he resides. Francis is an all-around wonderful saint, who did many great things throughout his life. In closing, Francis really showed how truly great he was by entering the world as a sinner but changing his ways of life through imprisonment and turning towards God and leaving the world as the very important saint we know today.

These conditions serve as a catalyst for his spiritual enlightenment and ultimately that of the Irish peoples (38). St. Patrick, as he would be called, after revelation from God, escapes from slavery and returns to his home in Britain for a short time. On return to Ireland, St. Patrick dedicates the remainder of his life to spreading Christianity through the land. He transformed original Celtic warrior values into new Christian ones. Not only did St. Patrick love the Irish people, but the Irish people loved St. Patrick.
DVC is doing a great job ad becoming what may be one day considered a very Ecologically friendly campus. Although it still needs much work, the direction DVC is moving is quite admirable. Eco-friendly campuses are becoming very popular among American Colleges. If our society keeps making advances in “Green-Living” as we have been the past 50 years, I believe that we will be able to see noticeable progress in air and ozone quality in the future decades to come.

Most of these people, at first did not believe in God but after some faith, they all converted to Christianity. The people included in this paper are extremely important people that lived their life differently than others because of what they believed. They are all great examples how Christianity has changed their lives since they converted.
It is interesting to find out that there were people like that , that dedicated so much of their lives for a cause. I am sure other saints accomplished as much as St. Boniface, but to my knowledge, he seemed like the most active and aggressive. He not only prayed for change, he went out and made it happen. He took journey’s that lasted years, traveled aimlessly at times, from one ship to another converting pagans and spreading the word as he went along. He even went on these missions in his elder years, though dangerous for his age, he continued until his death.
Nelson believed that his father had passed due to a lung disease, but the cause of his death is still unknown to this very day. Mandela said that he was very much like his father in the sense that he had “proud rebelliousness” (Mandela 24). Soon after the passing of his father Mandela’s mother took him to Mqhekezweni where he was taken under the family of Chief Dalindyebo. This family treated Mandela as their own child and it allowed him to be raised in a caring and loving environment. This family relied heavily on Christianity as well and it made a deep impact on the life of a young Nelson Mandela.
Being born from the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit, ... ... middle of paper ... ...either victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt In Conclusion, Christians have come a long way and have done a great job conserving their faith and spreading it throughout different parts of the world. Earlier Christians have suffered great turmoil for the religion that exists today and people should be thankful everyday that this wonderful religion is here on earth today. The religion is truly a great one, although many other religions branch off of this one, creating beliefs that better fit the people at the time and place. It’s truly amazing how one person can have the strength to stand up and say what he believes in, instead of following others around. That person is not always alone, there is always somebody who believes the same and together that’s how people create something great.
The Sacred Divine I believe the Divine sacred is something more powerful than anything on earth. Not necessarily in a physical sense but more in a spiritual. I feel that the youth of today, more than any other time in the world's history, needs to know something about what their parents and ancestors have found in religion. As we look at today's youth we see a decline in good Christian values or in a better sense the falling away from the good life Jesus has taught us. I remember when was a little boy my father always made me attend every funeral that happened to family or friends, even if I didn't know them.
