The Secret to Life

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.

Thank you Amanda, for sharing the real reason we remember St. Patrick who is the Patron Saint of all Ireland. He shared Christianity, using the shamrock to explain the gospel message and the Trinity. It is a religious holiday in Ireland with no school in Roman Catholic schools and Queen Elizabeth pins shamrock to the lapels of the Irish Guards in recognition of St. Patrick.

Commercialism has changed the image but the true message of the gospel has not, does not and will not change.

Thanking you again.
