When I was a child, I loved St. Patrick ’s Day!
My day always started with Lucky Charms and green milk…lol (My mom was always one to make any day a special day) It meant you wore green to school and dare you forget to, you’d get pinched all day! It usually meant class parties with green frosted sugar cookies and green koolaid.
As I got older, I realized that St. Patrick ’s Day was when people wore “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirts and chugging green-colored beer.
But did you know it actually has Christian roots?
First of all who was St. Patrick? Not much is known about him until he was 16 years old. He was just living life in Scotland, WHEN HE GOT KIDNAPPED BY BARBARIAN IRISH PIRATES! They forced to work as a shepherd and farm laborer for six years. One night, Patrick had a vision in which he was shown an escape route. So he high-tailed it out of there never to look back!...WRONG!
Although Patrick was a Christian, his faith meant little to him. That changed when he was kidnapped.
It’s what sustained him through those long, dark days. Now home, Patrick became a priest and soon felt a tremendous burden for the people that had kidnapped him. So he returned to Ireland with a mission. Can you imagine?! Ireland was a pagan country! Despite adversary, Patrick persisted. Eventually the king converted and was baptized by Patrick and much of the people of Ireland followed suit. Hallelujah!
Patrick would come to be known as the “Apostle of Ireland.” As he planted churches all over Ireland.
Here’s the Prayer of St. Patrick:
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I love this ^^
