Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland
Saint Patrick was born in Scotland. Patrick was kidnapped
at the age of sixteen, and taken to Ireland, where he was
sold into slavery. He learned all of the ways of his Irish
captors, and developed a deep– rooted belief and trust in
God. In a dream he was told how to escape. He left Ireland,
and returned to his family in Scotland. He studied for the
priesthood and worked until he became a bishop. It was at
this time that he was assigned to return to Ireland. Back
in Ireland, Patrick performed many miracles, and converted
many people to the Catholic faith. In his teaching, Patrick
used the Shamrock to demonstrate the belief of three persons
in one God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Thus
the Shamrock became the symbol of the Irish Catholic Faith.
The Feast day of Saint Patrick is celebrated on the 17th
of March each year, at home and abroad. It is also the day
he died and returned to God. We hope that all the members
of Platinum Clubhouse, and Clubhouse’s all over the world
have a lovely Saint Patrick’s Day. At this time of year,
we think also of all the Irish People who are Living and
Working all over the World.
