will you celebrate?

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." Matthew 28:19

Do you know why there's a St. Patrick's Day?  It isn't just a mindless, green party day, but has a meaningful, religious history.

In the fifth century, a child born in Roman Britain, was kidnapped and taken to Ireland as a slave.  A few years later he escaped and returned home where he devoted his life to God and became a priest.  Later, his calling returned him to Ireland to spread Christianity there.  St. Patrick is an important national apostle of Ireland.  As legend has it, he explained the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) by using the three leaves of a native Irish clover, the shamrock.  Since his death around March 17th, there is a Roman Catholic feast day of St. Patrick to honor him.

In the spirit of Saint Patrick, may we continue to live, share and tell others the Good News as he did.  It certainly is worthy of great celebration!

Will you celebrate?  Do tell!

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
