St. Patrick's Day

Just received an email from a friend. The mail is regularly sent to me at least four times a week, if not daily. It contains the morning thoughts for the day, together with some stories that would leave me pondering on about life in general.

But today, together with the morning thoughts, there was a greeting which says "Happy St. Patrick's Day". Curious what this is all about (since we don't have that kind of occasion here in the Philippines), I took some time browsing through some pages just to get an idea.

The St. Patrick's Day is dedicated to Irish people in the world. St. Patrick, who was the patron saint of Ireland was said to be the one responsible for bringing Christianity to Ireland. A devout Christian famously known for his two works (Confessio and Epistola), St. Patrick was described as the "most humble-minded man". he was also said to have driven away all the snakes from Ireland...(isn't that amazing?). The said event is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide.

By the way, here's the morning thought...just an added bonus.

Your morning thought for the day:

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
-- Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
