Thinking about that.... can't help but like the smooching behind the flag. :)
Have a good one, all you Irish, and Irish-for-a-day!
Life is more than a series of moments.
Here's a little breakdown of who St. Pat was, according to the Catholic Church. (I’ve mentioned my fascination with saints a number of times in my journal over the years. They've got some of the more interesting stories told about them, and are probably the closest thing to superheroes in most churches. Prophets are the big guns... Jesus, Moses... Superman and the Spectre... still in the service of a greater power (or a part of it, depending on who you ask / who's doing the writing.) Saints are known to have performed miracles. Now, there are a few types of miracles... but the ones that drew my interest as a kid were the flashy, cool ones. Being in two different places at once, flying, setting an army of his enemies on fire with just a look. See St' Pats... Shapeshifting, Telekinesis, Keeping the sun from setting.... all pretty cool compared to scaring off the snakes, if taken literally.
