    Saint Patricks Breastplate

    by Pastor Robert R. A. Mueller

    Having celebrated a mid-month national holiday in January (Martin Luther King, Jr., Day) and again in February (Presidents Day), U.S. Christians have an opportunity to observe a non-federally recognized mid-month holiday on March 17, St. Patricks Day.

    While the exact years of St. Patricks birth and death are not documented, it is known that he was born toward the end of the 4th Century (372 A.D.?) and died on March 17th (460? 466? 461 A.D., according to History.com.)

    The custom of early Christians was to celebrate the day when a believer was born into heaven (dies natalis in Latin: "Natal Day" or "Day of Birth"). That is, the day that the Christian died on earth, the day his soul left earth to be with Christ in heaven, awaiting the resurrection of the body transformed into immortality on the Last Day. The date March 17th there- fore is believed to be correct, even if we cannot ascertain the exact year.

    History says that Patrick was born in Great Britain, probably in Scot-land, to a well-to-do Christian family of Roman citizenship, [and] was captured and enslaved at age 16 by Irish marauders. For the next six years, he worked as a [sheep] herder in Ireland, turning to a deepening religious faith for comfort [in his isolated occupation.]

    He later escaped and found passage on a ship to Britain, where he eventually was reunited with his family. After spending years studying for the ministry, Patrick was ordained a bishop, arriving back in Ireland in 433, where he continued working, teaching, building churches, traveling around the country, and preaching the Gospel of the Lord, through whom many thousands of Irish were converted.

    Let St. Patricks mission to carry the good news to the people of his land be our mission as well: Lord, help us spread the Good News of Jesus saving love to those around us; Your kingdom come; Your will be done.

    A Lenten Prayer For You at Home

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. May we be at peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations, and say continually: The Lord is our strength and our shield. Our hearts have trusted in Him and we are helped. He is not only with us but in us and us in Him. Amen
