Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

A Saint Patrick's Day feast to recognize and remember the love that Patrick had for his Father and the commitment that he had for sharing that love with the people of Ireland.
He sets a truly worthy example for us to follow.
Legend has it that there are no snakes in Ireland because St. Patrick drove them into the sea by beating on a drum.  These snakes disappeared rather quickly from our home - no beating of drums though, just eating.  Bishop loved them!

Legend also has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the concept of the Holy Trinity to the people of Ireland.  Just as there is one stem with three leaves on each shamrock there is one God with three Divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Typically I would have a pot of shamrocks on the table but this year I made edible ones instead. Yum!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
