STORIES AND RECIPES ABOUT SAINT PATRICK

Hi There!!!







Welcome to this site!!!







Let´s read the story about St. Patrick





     On St. Patrick’s Day, the world goes green. But who inspired this global celebration –a man, a saint, or a glorious Irish myth?
As a British teenager enslaved on an Irish farm in the 5th century, Patrick doesn’t believe in God. But when he escapes, has an epiphany, and takes up the Church’s cause, he returns to Ireland determined to convert its many pagan tribes to Christianity. Defying Church conservatism, he begins an evangelistic crusade to bring about the Second Coming of Christ.

     200 years later, to unite their disparate peoples under one saintly banner, imaginative Irish monks turn Patrick’s story into a potent mix of folklore and fantasy. It worked, and today this apocalyptic priest’s legacy has become a life-affirming fusion of religious worship, reconciliation and ribald secular celebration.












     Everyone’s heard of St.Patrick, right? The mere mention of the name reminds us of shamrocks, green ale, and maybe even a leprechaun or two. But who was Saint Patrick really, and why in the world do we reserve an entire day in his honor? His story is one of the most compelling in Christian history, worthy of a blockbuster movie.









St. Patrick´s Day Recipe for you!!!

Yummy!!!



































I´M A LITTLE LEPRECHAUN SONG FOR KIDS

HELLO EVERYONE!!!






Let´s sing the Leprechaun Song.







LYRICS


I'm a little leprechaun 
Dressed in green, 
The tiniest man 
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me, so it's told,
I'll give you my big pot of gold.


I’m a little leprechaun,
Imagine that
With my little green boots,
And my big green hat
At the end of the rainbow.
So, it’s told, 
You will find my pot of gold.

I'm a little leprechaun 
Dressed in green, 
The tiniest man 
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me, so it's told,
I'll give you my big pot of gold.
