WHAT WAS COOKIN’ By Sherry McAdoo

March 17th – St Patrick’s Day.
It is celebrated with parades, festivals, the wearing of the green and the serving of traditional Irish dishes. Who is St. Patrick? He was born in Britain during the 4th century and kidnapped and enslaved by Irish raiders as a teenager. He escaped after six years and returned to Britain and became a priest. He chose to return to Ireland as a missionary in order to teach Christianity. According to Irish folklore, he used the shamrock to explain the Christian concept of the Trinity to the Irish. He continued to evangelize for thirty years establishing monasteries, churches and schools. He died March 17th and was canonized by the church.

AN OLD IRISH BLESSING
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall softly upon your field
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
