"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

Why do people wear Shamrocks on St. Patrick's Day?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Real rock would look funny.

If you've read my other stuff, you know I have an Irish last name. It has punctuation - not a hyphen or a hypotenuse - in it. But I'm French on my Mother's side. In my youth I had an occasion to drink too much and hit on a woman I should leave alone thus provoking a fight I couldn't possibly win then surrender. Fortunately, I was a reasonably fast learner and it didn't take more than twice to change my ways. Ok, maybe 3 times. But I'm older, wiser and more absent minded now.

That said, I was talking to another half-Irishman yesterday (his other half is Mexican) and we decided:

1) we needed no excuse to have TOO MANY drinks
2) we do not wear vacu-formed plastic derby hats with gold card board shamrocks stapled to them
3) we wear green when and where we feel like it
4) we don't ask to be kissed. Women just naturally want to kiss us.

edit: Happy Saint Patrick's Day. Today is extra special since it's also payday.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I went to wish you all a Happy Saint Patrick's Day but someone already started a thread. So Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you all, a great Mission celebration of the Church.

If any of you have not read the history about Saint Patrick it is quite interesting. He had been taken as a slave to Ireland and later became free. Nonetheless, he went again there preaching the gospel.

So as you think on all that God has done for you buying you back from death through his holy Son Jesus Christ, may the road rise to meet you.
