St. Patty’s Day Aftermath

No hangover today.

I have never really celebrated St. Patrick because, while in grade school, my mom was too busy surviving to remember things like the need to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. Consequently, I was “tormented” by pinches or by the need to lie about the color of my underwear.

Traumatic for a kid.

So, since I failed to honor St. Patrick yesterday…I thought a tribute might be in order.

Saint Patrick…

  • Was enslaved as a child to herd sheep in Ireland
  • By a dream, was directed to escape and, then, later to go back to help the Irish
  • Lived in poverty his entire life, sacrificing his life for the salvation of others
  • Used the shamrock to explain the Trinity
