Today is the day of St. Patrick, patron of Ireland, was a Catholic priest, that its maximum expression was the ease with which evangelized, reaching all the people, making known God’s word to every inhabitant of the higher classes and the poorest, explaining very clearly what it means god and the holy trinity, for which use the 3-leaf clover.
St. Patrick explained that the clover (called shamrock) is one, as is the Holy Trinity, each leaf represents a part of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Each is an entity in itself, but the three are the Holy Trinity, the divine unity.
The three petals symbolize the three persons in one God.
Another ancient tradition says that St. Patrick sought God’s grace that Ireland be forever free from poisonous snakes and insects and that his prayer was accepted. So the artists are shown standing near the shore of the ocean and at his grim expression fleeing snakes deep into the earth to the sea.
What is more honored in St. Patrick’s is his loyalty to the conversion of the people and despite the difficulties and obstacles it fully realized.
It is a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland (a party out of habit and not legal in Northern Ireland); in Montserrat and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
His final words are these:
Christ protect me today,
Against poison, fire,
Against water, against injury,
To receive the award.
Christ with me Christ before me,
Christ behind me Christ within,
Below Christ, Christ above,
Christ on my right hand, Christ on my left,
Christ in the fort,
Christ leading the float,
Christ in the ship’s stern,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
I make myself stronger today with ligation
The invocation of the Holy Trinity,
The faith of the Trinity in Unity
The creator of all elements. “
