Stained glass from the Church of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, and St. Patrick, Goleen, County Cork, Ireland by Andreas F. Borchert
From our Lutheran Witness magazine: “In many ways, Patrick was more Irish than the Irish. He loved Irish legends, poetry and songs, and he insisted that this heritage be documented and retained. For their part, the Irish loved him and embraced him. Patrick lived his life in Ireland and died there. He left behind a Christian people, a civilized people, and he left behind towns, schools, seminaries and a love of learning perpetuated to this day.” – John Murphy Bell
Lutherans love St. Patrick too.
