Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Picture source

Sad that St. Patrick wasn't remember at Mass this morning. His feast day isn't such a big deal here in Hawaii as it is on the east coast. But that is alright. I I'm sure people remembered anyway because most were wearing green.  Today everyone is Irish!


Prayer to St. Patrick

Dear St. Patrick,
in your humility you called yourself a sinner,
but you became a most successful missionary
and prompted countless pagans
to follow the Savior.
Many of their descendants in turn
spread the Good News in numerou8s foreign lands.
Through your powerful intercession with God
obtain the missionaries we need
to continue the work you began.

Amen.
