Saint Patrick’s Day

Have you ever wondered what Saint Patrick’s day is??? Or why we wear green on Saint Patrick’s day??? I did a little research because I was wondering about this seemingly random holiday on march 17th.

Saint Patrick was a British christian brother who lived around the 5th century. When Saint Patrick was about 16 he was kidnapped by a group of Irish pirates. St. Patrick was captive for 6 years until he escaped and sailed back to Britain. The ship faced rough seas and when the ship finally made it to shore st Patrick had to walk home. During these great trials in st Patrick’s life, his faith in God was becoming stronger.

After having a vision for some years of a shepherd boy walking among the hills and teaching the Irish people about God. St Patrick returned to Ireland as a missionary and faced the many trails of a life in ministry. St Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people and lead many to the Lord.

St. Patrick died on March 17th. Now we celebrate his life, courage and faith in God on March 17th. We wear green and shamrocks because of the creative way St Patrick used them to share the love of God. St Patrick is a very inspiring minster.

Have a wonderfully Happy Saint Patrick’s day!

Until we meet again
