Time to wear green today! St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite special days because today we remember Patrick, the bishop of Ireland in the fourth century, whose exploits are legendary is even a little mythical. This day ought to be celebrated by missionaries everywhere, for above all, Patrick is known as an early cross-cultural missionary to the people of Ireland, who up to that point had not been exposed to Christianity. Patrick managed not only to spread the gospel among the Irish, but also found a bastion of western civilization while Europe burned.
Just a note for today. God bless.
