St. Patrick’s Real Legacy
By: Rick Boxx
March 15, 2013
According to Wikipedia, St. Patrick’s Day originally celebrated the priest who returned to Ireland in 432 AD to bring Christianity to his homeland. Ireland had been a polytheistic culture.
One way Patrick introduced them to Christ was by using the 3 leaved shamrock to describe the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. He made a difference by communicating in cultural and relevant ways.
In Acts 17:23 Paul did likewise. We read, “For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god.Now what you worship as something unknownI am going to proclaim to you.”
