7 Facts about Saint Patrick and His Faith

Friday is Saint Patrick’s Day, everyone’s favorite day to wear the color green and drink Shamrock Shakes. But what do you know about the man the holiday is named after? Saint Patrick lived less than five hundred years after Jesus, and he spent forty years traveling throughout Ireland, spreading the gospel to the Druid people.

While celebrating the patron saint of Ireland with corned beef and cabbage and the wearing o’ the green, share some of these facts with your kids!

  1. We celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day on March 17, which isn’t his birthday; it’s the day he died. We’re celebrating the day he got to heaven!
  2. Legends say Saint Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland, but it’s more likely that there were never any snakes on the island. Today, the only reptile native to Ireland is the viviparous lizard.
  3. Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock (a young clover sprig) to explain the Trinity–the three persons of God—since it has three leaves growing off of one stem.
  4. The shortened version of Patrick is Paddy not Patty. Patty is a woman’s name; Paddy is short for the Gaelic name Pádraig, which is where we get Patrick.
  5. Saint Patrick wasn’t actually Irish! He was born in modern-day England, to parents who were Roman citizens.
  6. When Patrick was sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland, where he learned about the people of that land. When he was twenty-two, he escaped back to England, where he dedicated his time to studying his faith until he returned to Ireland.
  7. Traditionally, people wear green to celebrate the holiday, but in the earliest depictions, Saint Patrick is shown wearing blue.

Making Choices Can Be Fun & Delicious!

We all have choices to make every day, even the youngest children. The choices we make play a large part in forming who we grow to be as adults. For kids, those choices can include whether to be obedient or disobedient, to share or be selfish, to have a good attitude or not, and more.

John Ortberg addresses the ability to choose in a whimsical way by inviting children to use their “magnificent chooser” that God gave them to make right choices daily in his new book, Your Magnificent Chooser.

Take time to teach your child about making Godly choices with the following activities. Enjoy learning through prayer, memorization, and praising the Lord together!

There’s No Easy Jesus

Many Christians share a secret. Few of us dare to speak it out loud, because doing so would feel like taking a slap at God—and it wouldn’t make us look good either. Yet this secret is affecting us painfully on the inside every single day.

Here it is: Believing in Jesus has left us disappointed.

 

At one point we were thrilled and hopeful about living a life of trusting in Christ. But over time our experience has failed to live up to our expectations or make the difference we thought it would.

So we’ve begun to think: “This can’t be all there is to being a Christian.”

If that’s what you’ve been thinking… you’re right.

Jason Mitchell invites you to move forward when you’re bored, disillusioned, and beaten down by faith-as-usual.

It’s a clarion challenge to wake up each day and choose Jesus all over again; to make the tough, gritty choices that align your way with His and lead to true fullness of life.

Because when you decided to follow Jesus, you didn’t sign up for what was easiest–you signed up for what was best.
