Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit! That’s Happy St. Patrick’s Day in Gaelic. This morning, I traveled back in time to the 17th century in Connemara. I’m at a wee cottage, feeding the chickens before heading to Mass. It is an absolutely glorious day!
The man known as St. Patrick was born in Britain in the 4th century. He was kidnapped at the age of 16 and brought to Ireland by a group of Irish raiders. For six years he mostly tended sheep, alone and homesick. He turned to religion for solace. Eventually, he became a priest and incorporated Ireland’s pagan religious symbols and practices into Christianity. This allowed Christianity to flourish throughout Ireland.
In Ireland up until the 1970’s, St. Patrick’s Day was a strictly religious holiday, with bars and parades outlawed. After the restrictions were eased, the Irish took advantage of the holiday to promote tourism. St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated around the world.
