Writer's Wednesday - St Patrick

When you are of Irish descent and named for St. Patrick as I am, you grow up learning to love all the stories about this wonderful saint and all the parades in his honor.  And if you are from the New York area, as I am, St. Patrick's Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan is your favorite shrine, short of visiting the Basilicas of Rome, or say, Fatima.

But once you grow up, if you really want to know what Patrick is about, you've got to listen to his prayer.  If you want to know any saint, or if you want to know Jesus better, listen to their prayer. It tells you alot. When you know Patrick's prayer, then you "get" Patrick: Patrick the Christian, the Bishop, the priest, the man, the Saint.
