Saint Patricks Walking Stick Grows Into A Living Tree
There is a legend of Saint Patrick's walking stick turning into a living tree. During Saint Patrick's evangelizing journey back home to Ireland from his parent’s residence in Birdoswald, it was understood that Patrick was supposedly carrying a walking stick that was made out of an ash tree. Wherever Saint Patrick was evangelizing he would thrust his walking stick into the ground. This place was known called Aspatria, which meant Ash of Patrick. During the evangelizing, the message took a long time to get through to the people there. During that time the stick had there so long that it had taken root by the time Saint Patrick was ready to move on with his journey to Ireland.
