St. Patrick’s Day

“I am not afraid of any of these things [murder, betrayal, slavery]
because of the promises of heaven;
for I have put myself in the hands of God Almighty.”
~  St. Patrick

Requisite of Irish monastic hospitality:
a clean house,
a big fire,
and a couch without sorrow.

Patrick’s legacy:  St. Columba and the Abbey at Iona
It is a dream of mine to see Iona some day,
to stand on these grounds
and to thank God for his faithful servants.
