St Patrick’s Day
Deus, qui ad prædicandum gentibus gloriam tuam beatum Patricium confessorem atque pontificem mittere dignatus es: ejus meritis et intercessione concede, ut, quæ nobis ænda praecipis, te miserante adimplere possimus. Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia sæcula sæculorum.

R. Amen.
I’m not Irish but, despite Thomas Day’s and others’ honesty about their shortcomings, like the rest of the English-speaking Catholic world I appreciate their carrying the church in our lands when few else would or could, so now Irish and Catholic are still just about synonymous in them. Thanks!
Drink a round to Ireland, boys; I’m home again.
Drink a round to Jesus Christ who died for Irish men.
– Hugh Prestwood

A reason I put off posting today, besides work, is what more can I say?

From the vault:
And yes, I’m wearing subtle shades of green, very dark or greyish.
