Happy Saint Patricks Day


Saint Patrick

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure it's like a morning spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter,
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

There's a tear in your eye, and I'm wondering why,
For it never should be there at all.
With such power in your smile, sure a stone you'd beguile,
So there's never a teardrop should fall.
When your sweet lilting laughter's like some fairy song,
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be,
You should laugh all the while and all other times smile,
And now smile a smile for me.

The Wearing Of The Green

Legends tell of the young Bishop Saint Patrick, who plucked a simple,
humble shamrock from the ground somewhere on the lush green hillsides
of County Armagh back in the year 432 AD. He used it to explain the
Mystery of the Blessed Trinity to the Ancient High Kings of Ireland,
making the Shamrock an important symbol as Ireland's National Emblem.
It is also said that Saint Patrick drove the snakes from Ireland into
the sea. St. Patrick is named the patron Saint for bringing Christianity
to Ireland, and introducing the Irish people to Baptism.

That is why March 17th is now celebrated as the
"Feast Day Of Saint Patrick",
when Irish people from all over the world traditionally wear the shamrock
on their chests, hence the phrase "The Wearing Of The Green".
Saint Patrick's death on March 17, in about 461, has been observed in
America since colonial days. A popular recipe at this observance is Corned
Beef & Cabbage.

An Irish Blessing:

May you always have work for your hands to do
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow the rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And my God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

An Irish Toast: "May the wind at your back not be the result
of the corned beef and cabbage you had for lunch."
