It is St. Patrick’s Day
Maybe the most well known saint in the world due to the diaspora of Irish people across the globe for the past two centuries
Maybe people know that he was from Wales, supposedly born to a Christian deacon and his wife, probably around the year 390.
According to Lore, at 16 he was enslaved by Irish raiders who attacked his wealthy home estate; they transported him to Ireland and held him captive for six years, supposedly he spend time tending sheep on a mountain where he communicated with the Divine or the Divine communicated with him and told him it was time for him to leave.
Patrick fled to England, where he received religious instruction before returning to Ireland to serve as a missionary
What we don’t know is a lot including if he was from Celtic or Roman descent, if he was a practicing member of the Celtic Church which was around for hundreds of years longer than the Catholic Church and if he was sent on a mission from Rome or if Rome usurped his mission and used his story – ‘history’ to advance the newer catholic church.
Not to incite insult among my catholic friends particularly of Irish origin but the early Celtic Christian Church was a beautiful system of understanding of the interconnectedness of all things including the law of one. The Island of Iona, and a lot of the early monasteries were not founded by the roman catholic church but the celtic church.
It has a deep resonance for me personally, perhaps you may find the same.
One of the things that St Patrick is credited to bring to ireland was the understanding of the Trinity – Father Son and Holy Spirit – the Holy Spirit is the Divine Feminine, hiding in plain sight – as above so below, laws of polarity for creation in this world (+ – =) etc.
The thing is this might lead me to believe that maybe St Patrick was celtic as the celtic church and ancient teachings are all things triple – past, present and future, sun, moon stars, etc and are represented all throughout Ireland in the Triskelion and the Trifecta. So the Shamrock was just another representation of the trio – so was he Celtic? There is a very large connection to Celtic in Wales where he is from and the early Celtic christian church had many outposts there.
Or was St.Patrick Roman and the first trademark infringement of the Roman Church in Ireland began with superimposing the trinity on the shamrock to sway its population to this new direction. As time progressed the previously recognised ‘holy’ sites were then taken over by the Church to advance the cause…
Perhaps we will never know…but it is worth considering. Regardless I love the shamrock, such a beautiful and gentle green plant and also a beautiful representation of The trinity, as are the Triskelion and the Triquetra which were used before it.
So Happy St. Patrick’s Day may the mirth and blessing of the Irish be with you.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand
And in Irish – as gaeilge that is
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d’aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.
