Land of Saints

Saturday, March 17, AD 2012


Something for the weekend.  In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day a video honoring a few of the Saints who have ennobled the history of the Emerald Isle.  At their head stands Saint Patrick who brought the Cross to Ireland:

In a vision of the night, I saw a man whose name was Victoricus coming as it from Ireland with innumerable letters, and he gave me one of them, and I read the beginning of the letter: “The Voice of the Irish”, and as I was reading the beginning of the letter I seemed at that moment to hear the voice of those who were beside the forest of Foclut which is near the western sea, and the were crying as if with one voice: “‘We beg you, holy youth, that you shall come and shall walk again among us.” And I was stung intensely in my heart so that I could read no more, and thus I awoke. Thanks be to God, because after so many years the Lord bestowed on them according to their cry.

  • Donald and Catherine McClarey and Family: HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY

  • Saint Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland and the snakes came over to the White House. Our Lady of Knock pray for us and give us the strength to withstand the mighty temptation the snake puts before us. In the Name of Jesus. Amen

  • Thanks, Mary, and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, too!

  • Went out to dinner last night to friends place – Geoff Keogh, and his wife Alayne – her maiden name was Curry – how Irish can you get?
    Quite a international gathering actually, if you consider our ancestry. Geoff and Alayne of course, Irish.
    Meself, Beckett, English/Norman name, but with Scottish(Celtic) and Saxon ancestry. My wife, nee Calder – Scottish from her father, and mother was part Maori.
    Happy St. Paddies day, wear the green, but treat the guiness with care 🙂

  • America was populated by so many Catholics from Ireland thanks be to God for Catholic priest and nuns. A mass with a bit of the Irish accent is so sweet.
