At another time, as Patrick was with the sheep, the wolf carried off a sheep from him. His fostermother blamed him greatly therefor. On the morrow the wolf brought the sheep whole to that same stead; and strange was restitution out of that place, to wit, out of the wolf's teeth, as regards the usual food.1 So when the fostermother of Patrick saw that God's grace was growing in him, namely in miracles and marvels, she loved him greatly, and she liked not to go in any direction without (having) him along with her. Once upon a time his fostermother went to milk the cow. He also went with her to drink a draught of new milk. Then the cow goes mad in the byre and killed five other kine: a demon, namely, entered her. There was great sadness on his fostermother,2 and she told him3 to bring the kine back to life. Then he brought the kine to life, so that they were whole, and he cured the mad one. So God's name and Patrick's were magnified thereby. 1 Here Colgan (7V. Thaum. p. 118) inserts the story of the resuscitation of the dead child, given infra 'n the homily from the Lebar Brecc. 3 from the destruction of the mad cow and of the five other kine. 3 when he was asking for milk.
