St. Patrick’s Day…tomorrow…lots of school parties today though…you might be planning a special meal or maybe you’re like what’s the big deal.
It seems sometimes as an excuse for a party, or rowdy behavior…kind of something you want to stay away from.
But, I saw something last night that said, St. Patrick is much more important than you might think. Not just for the Irish. Not just for wearing green. Not just for corned beef and cabbage, but for the secret to life.
He came as a slave to a country that was deeply spiritual but had a spirituality of searching. The Celtic spirituality was rooted in nature.
A lot of the old Celtic symbols were attempts to unravel the secret of life, a secret that seemed to elude them until St. Patrick came to Ireland.
He taught them the real secret to life, that there is only one God and that you have a soul that will live forever.
