Profile of the Day: Saint Patrick
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrated internationally on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day marks the anniversary of the death of Saint Patrick, one of the most commonly recognized patron saints of Ireland. It has been said that as a Christian missionary, Saint Patrick once plucked a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish, and thus the shamrock and the wearing of green have become ubiquitous features of the day.
