Cead Mile Failte

(A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)

St. Patrick's Day, is Ireland's biggest national holiday as well as a holy day. It marks the anniversary of the death of the missionary who became the patron Saint of Ireland.

He was born in Wales around AD 385. His given name was Maewyn. He traveled throughout Ireland, establishing monasteries across the country. He also set up schools and churches which would aid him in his conversion of the Irish country to Christianity.

May St. Patrick guard you wherever you go
and guide you in whatever you do.
And may his loving protection
be a blessing to you always.
~Irish Blessing~

It is what it is

Hi Rod!

Happy St Patty's Day. I didn't know that, even with an Irish last name!

Thanks for the bit of education.
