Muirchú's Life of Patrick (Author: Muirchú maccu Machtheni)

Chapter 3


And again, after many years, he was taken captive by strangers. There on the first night he was granted to hear a divine message saying


to him:‘ Two months you shall be with them’, that is, with your enemies. (2) And so it happened. On the sixtieth day the Lord rescued him from their hands, and provided for him and for his companions food and fire and dry weather every day until on the tenth day they met people.
