Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
St. Patrick’s Day, fundamentally, is a celebration of Christianity. Patrick is honored as the patron Saint of Ireland because he brought Christianity to the island. The reason the shamrock is associated with this day is because Patrick used that little plant as a means of illustrating the Holy Trinity.
Ireland’s greatest national treasure is the Book of Kells; a result of Patrick’s influence. The Book is a compilation of illuminated manuscripts, marvelously explicating the text. It is hardly an accident that a nation that so reveres a book should have produced so many notable writers.
Buiochas le Dia!
