St Patrick’s Day 2023


The day after tomorrow (Friday March 17, 2023) sees the ‘celebration’ of the man elevated by the churches (and the world!) as “St Patrick.”

The story of St Patrick is a familiar one IF the reader has researched those men and women proclaimed to be “SAINTS” by the Catholic Church.

Almost ALL of the proclaimed men and women started their lives as confirmed PAGANS.

The man called ‘St Patrick’ was no different.

Almost ALL of the men and women designated as ‘saints’ are associated with stories of their MIRACULOUS power.

The man called ‘St Patrick’ was no different.

BUT, the stories of the (mysterious!)  MIRACULOUS power of those ‘saints’ were added YEARS after the ‘saint’ died.  In many cases, HUNDREDS of years after the ‘saint’ had passed on, stories appeared which associated the person with MIRACLES!

Patrick was no different.

A FEW of the stories moderns have come to know the man proclaimed as “Saint Patrick” follow.

1- St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland.

But there has NEVER been any record of ANY snakes EVER being in Ireland–either before or after Patrick supposedly drove them out.

From Why Are There No Snakes in Ireland?:

Legend tells of St. Patrick using the power of his faith to drive all of Ireland’s snakes into the sea. It’s an impressive image, but there’s no way it could have happened.

There never were any snakes in Ireland, partly for the same reason that there are no snakes in Hawaii, Iceland, New Zealand, Greenland, or Antarctica: the Emerald Isle is, well, an island.

Once upon a time, Ireland was connected to a larger landmass. But that time was an ice age that kept the land far too chilly for cold-blooded reptiles. As the ice age ended around 10,000 years ago, glaciers melted, pouring even more cold water into the now-impassable expanse between Ireland and its neighbors.

Other animals, like wild boars, lynx, and brown bears, managed to make it across—as did a single reptile: the common lizard. Snakes, however, missed their chance.

As one biologist put it, “Patrick could not have driven the snakes from Ireland because there were NO snakes in Ireland to begin with.”

But the ‘legend’ of St Patrick includes the story of him driving the snakes from Ireland.

2- Patrick wasn’t the ONLY personage associated with the color green.

The color GREEN has LONG been associated with St Patrick.

But he wasn’t the only one linked to green.

Why was the colour green associated with Satan and how did that relationship decline?

Recently my professor explained how in English literature the colour green often represented the devil, he used “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” as an example. He said a contemporary of Fitt would have been aware of this association.

One way modern men and women have ‘celebrated’ the day proclaimed as “St Patrick’s Day” is to indulge in drinking large amounts of beer.

GREEN beer (Actually, beer that has been colored green by adding dye to it).

As is the case with MOST of the pagans-turned-saints, Patrick was proclaimed to be the PATRON SAINT of a country.  In Patrick’s case, it was Ireland.

Drinking intoxicating drink has ALWAYS been frowned upon by God’s Word.

“Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”
–Proverbs 20:1

“For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”
–Proverbs 23:21

Because so many Irish immigrated and stayed in the New York City area, that area has FOND MEMORIES of the man called St Patrick.

The largest Catholic Church in the area is named ST PATRICK’S CATHEDRAL and NYC celebrates Patrick with the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade–which usually attracts the attention of all those wanting Irish VOTES for one reason or another.

[This has been ETPR’s 2023 contribution to the man called St Patrick.]

HAS the reader ever devoted much thought to St Patrick or St Patrick’s Day?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
