St. Patrick Day Quips, Quotes & Blessings


An Old Irish Blessing

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.

A Wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Irish Saint Patrick's Day Toast

Saint Patrick was a gentleman,
Who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here's a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see all those snakes again.
'Beannachtam na Feile Padraig!'
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A Little Trivia Too!!


Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland
and he is commemorated on March 17
each year. His name wasn't always Patrick,
He was born as Maewyn Succat, the son
of a Roman official in Whales. At the age
of 16 Maewyn was kidnapped and sold into
slavery in Ireland. He spent six years as a
slave in Ireland before he escaped by boat.
He traveled to Gaul in France where he
studied in a monastery for 12 years. He
became a bishop and adopted the Christian
name Patricius, in English: Patrick.

Patrick had had a lot of visions about
Ireland and so he decided to go back to
convert the Irish pagans to Christianity.
Other missionaries had tried to do the
same before but they did not succeed.
Patrick, however, knew the Irish. During his
slavery he had learned many things about
the Irish life and their gods. So, Patrick
didn't for example introduce the cross as
we know it from our churches. He included
the sun because he knew that it was an
important symbol for the Irish. The so
called Celtic Cross therefore is a cross with
a circle in the upper part symbolizing the
sun. The holy Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit)
was explained by Patrick with the help of
a shamrock. The shamrock is a plant that
grows everywhere in Ireland. It consists
of three equally sized leaves and Patrick
used the shamrock to show how the Father,
the Son and the Holy Spirit could exist as
separate elements of the same entity.

Patrick is also known for ridding Ireland of
all its snakes. And there are still no snakes
to be found on that island. Patrick died in
the year 461. People weren't actually sure
whether he died on March 8 or 9. Rather
than argue about the day on which he
actually died, the witty Irish just added the
two dates together and so St. Patrick's day
is celebrated on March 17.

An Irish Friendship Wish


An Irish Friendship Wish


May there always be work for your
hands to do

May your purse always hold a coin
or two

May the sun always shine on your
windowpane

May a rainbow be certain to follow
each rain

May the hand of a friend always be
near you

May God fill your heart with gladness
to cheer you

An Irish Blessing


An Irish Blessing

May the road rise

to meet you,

May the wind be always

at your back,

May the sun shine warm

upon your face,

The rains fall soft

upon your fields and,

Until we meet again,

May God hold you

in the palm of His hand
