Patrick: A Heart Afire, Part 1
{{#vardefine:characters|11}}“Patrick: A Heart Afire, Part 1” is episode #394 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Matt Summer and Paul McCusker, and originally aired {{#var:airdatelink}}.


Whit tells Jared DeWhite the story of Saint Patrick, a missionary to Ireland.


Jared arrives at Whit's End wearing a green sweater in honor of St. Patrick's Day, but is not sure why the green has significance, so Whit offers to tell him the story of St. Patrick.

In flashback, the drama describes the early life of Patrick, a rebellious young Englishman. Irish raiders destroy Patrick's village and take him captive to Ireland. On the boat to Ireland, Patrick tells Julius, the baker's son, that he believes the destruction of his home is due to his disobedience toward his father.

King Niehl, under the influence of Lochrue, a Druid priest, takes slaves from the British captives as workers and human sacrifices. At the slave auction, Patrick is chosen as a human sacrifice, but on the way to the temple, Patrick is taken into slavery by Mieclu, a landowner, as payment for a debt. The six years that Patrick serves as a shepherd for Mieclu prove to be a turning point as he grows closer and closer to God. He has a vision telling him to return to England. When Mieclu refuses to grant him his freedom, he escapes and takes passage on a vessel bound first for France, then to England.

Discussion Questions[edit]

  1. Patrick felt that the village raid was God's punishment for him. Do you think it was?
  2. Why did Whit say that being a shepherd was a good thing for Patrick?
    • What did Patrick's vision from God tell him to do?
  3. Why couldn't Patrick seal his arrangement to the ship captain "with blood"?
    • Why did he object to this?
