St. Patrick, pray for the Irish!

Once upon a time, I lived in Switzerland and had easy access to lots of wonderful destinations in Europe.  For a friend’s 22nd birthday, we jetted off to Dublin for a three-day weekend celebration.  I was horribly sick with a cold, and thus a very cranky travel companion.  Thankfully my dear friend put up with me!

Today, in honor of St. Patrick, I’ll post some of the pictures I took there.  It was so exciting to visit one of my ancestral homelands, and I can’t wait to do a full tour of Ireland one day!  I still dream of the leek and potato soup I devoured there. Mmm!

To you, Triune God,
confident in the loving protection of Mary,
Queen of Ireland, our Mother,
and of Saint Patrick, Saint Brigid and all the saints,
do we entrust ourselves, our children,
and the needs of the Church in Ireland.
Amen.
