Charlie and St Patrick

Charlie (6) came bouncing in from school this afternoon -

"Daddy, daddy, we learned all about St Patrick today - he was from Wales, he was kidnapped and came to Northern Ireland, and then he escaped and went back home, but then God spoke to him in dreams and told him to come back. And he did - he came back and preached to the people in Northern Ireland and told them all about God. It was a really long time ago, and he died and was buried at Downpatrick and that's where his grave is...

...and now he's in Heaven as a leprechaun"

I kid you not.
