ST. PATRICK’S DAY C.C. Forche
Saint Patrick lived from AD 387-461. He began life in Rome born to parents of high rank, ( somehow people imagined that they were important). At the age of 16 he was kidnapped and sold as a slave to work for a chieftain named Milchu in Dilardia. For the next 6 years he tended this man’s flocks and prayed. When released from his slavery, he was on a mission to free the Irish people.
He was prepared with a strong knowledge of the Celtic language and had studied amazing amounts of Scripture. Attacked by the Druids, as he was against Druidism, he has an amazing story of heroism and Sainthood all for God and His children. Saint Patrick died on March 17th 493.
The holiday to celebrate St. Patrick is a religious day of remembrance and the lifting of restrictions from lent food or drink. It is supposed to be about celebrating freedom to be Christian, not just a drunk…but when anyone is free truly free..God’s way, they have the right to choose. St. Patrick devoted his life to freeing people from slavery and the internal slavery of believing lies. With outstanding love he tried to get the word of God to everyone and performed many miracles along the way. His story is amazing and after we read it, we realize, once again, that the price of freedom is faith, hard work and sacrifice. We can decide how we really want to celebrate St. Patty’s day. The Christian/freedom thing again….guilty as charged.
