St Patrick's Day as was
God help us, The Inn missed a St Patrick's Day mention on the day entirely. His collect from the old English Missal:
O God, who for the preaching of thy glory unto the Gentiles wast pleased to send forth blessed Patrick, thy confessor and Bishop : grant by his merits and intercession ; that we may through thy mercy be enabled to accomplish those things which thou commandest us to do. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.For more than you even knew existed about St Patrick, bookmark this wonderful site Trias Thaumaturga and peruse at your leisure. There is much for the feasts of St Brigid (1 February) and St Colum Cille (9 June) also.
And in an attempt to atone for inexcusable tardiness, here is the St Laurence O'Toole Pipe Band's medley performance at the 2015 Worlds.
