The true meaning of St. Patrick’s Day, which is today, is not to honor Ireland but to honor missionaries. But we can honor Ireland too, which–thanks to St. Patrick and the church he brought to that island–saved civilization. To celebrate the day, don’t just wear green. Read this meditation by St. Patrick, which has been turned into a hymn and one of this blog’s most popular posts: Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me.
