~Author Unknown

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland...

Liveried angels robed in green,
Wearing, by St Patrick.s bounty,
Emeralds big as half the county.

Who came of decent people;
He built a church in Dublin town,
And on it put a steeple.

The Spring steps in so charmin',

In the middle of March,
Wid her hand St. Patrick's arm on...

Here's a drinkee to his health!

Lest we lose ourselves and then...
Forget the good Saint Patrick

May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

Image of Vincent was born in the Third Century in Huesca, Spain and born again to eternal life only four days into the fourth century. He lived in Saragossa where he served the holy Bishop Valerius as a Deacon.He was one of the scores of Christians who suffered brutal persecution under the evil Roman emperor named Diocletian. Diocletian is associated with the last of the ten persecutions of the nascent undivided Christian Church of the first millennium of our history.  Like many early deacons of the undivided Church such as Stephen, Lawrence and Ephrem, the hagiography which has been passed down through the Church records his holiness of life and heroic virtue. He lived the way he died, as a sign of the power of the Gospel and the truth of the presence of the Risen Jesus Christ in our midst.
