Writer's Wednesday - St Patrick

This comes a day late and a dollar short for St. Patrick's day, but I'm going with it anyway.

When you are of Irish descent, named after St. Patrick as I am, you pay attention to the stories of St. Patrick when you are a little. And you come to really love a good St. Patty's Day parade, even if you could never stomach green beer or corned beef and cabbage.

Then when you are not so little, and looking a little deeper into the life and times of Patrick, the Christian, the Bishop, the Priest, the Saint, you come across his prayer, and then, and only then, you "get" Patrick.
