To mark the year of St Patrick, every year we celebrate by giving him a drink from a Pint of Guinness, or other Irish beer. The beer is traditionally drunk on a Friday night, as St Patrick made his way to Ireland to find his brother Gallus, who had been kidnapped by the Brits. Legend has it that St Patrick ran a tea shop on the way back from the ransom.
St Patrick took a special liking to beer, particularly to its excellent cooling properties. He was also fond of music, as many of the Irish people were illiterate. He kept a collection of music sheets for his staff, with all the notes left on the keys of the music book as he walked through Ireland.
In order to learn about St Patrick and his life and adventures, we can follow his footsteps. We visit a St Patrick’s Day website to find out more about him and the meaning of the green clothes. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the origin of St Patrick and why we celebrate him in green clothes on St Patrick’s Day.
In Irish folklore, the color green has always meant fertility and magic. In the story of Proserpine, we find out that the color green was used to distinguish between living and dead bodies. Proserpine could distinguish between the living and the dead only when she saw them wearing green.
From Proserpine, we get a hint that St Patrick was a sorcerer who had great knowledge of the secrets of the universe. He was also a member of the magical order of Tuatha de Danann, which is found in the literature of Ireland and Scotland. This magical order is similar to the medieval Star of Bethlehem. According to legend, they flew to the sky to proclaim Jesus’ birth to the four corners of the earth.
St Patrick has also been worshipped as a pagan god. He was a great healer and mystic, as well as being a magician. He was said to have cured many of the people he came across. He was also said to have held conversations with demons themselves.
On Halloween, the traditional costumes are of witches, ghouls, and ghosts. This tradition began in Ireland and then spread to Britain. A traditional Irish costume includes a leprechaun hat. St Patrick is said to have fought against the Druids who wanted to set up a Christian religion in Ireland.
When St Patrick arrived in Ireland, he brought with him the knowledge of the “five senses”. He had established a center for sorcery, the “magus’s school”, which he started in the time of King Shrove 1030. This school taught all sorts of magic and healing arts. Irish and British magicians would go on to teach the secrets of the Five Spiritual Senses and how to use the power of the mind.
It was because of this that St Patrick was considering an evil man by the people. His appearance was hated and his behavior was ignored. St Patrick has become popular as a saint to many people who want to turn their dislike of evil into positive action. His cure of disease for all the people of Ireland is regarded as a great contribution to mankind.
If you were to write a letter to St Patrick, you would find that he would be very grateful. He would also be grateful to you since he wanted to know everything that you knew about. You may have written to him to ask about the origins of the green clothes, but he would send you his greetings and say: “good day to you”. He was a great lover of music and poetry and in Irish and Scottish folklore there is a saying that goes: “the poet writes down the world”, and indeed that is what poets always write down in poems and other writings.
