See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

St. Patrick, Patron Saint of Drinkers.



Happy St. Paddy's Day!
.
It is the feast of St. Patrick.  Just about everyone is Irish today, which also means most everyone is a devout Catholic.  St. Patrick isn't really the patron saint of drinkers, just the Irish.

What?

Photo:  St Patrick in a pub - the statue was in a church but it was closed.  The statue was then returned to the family who donated it.  The authorities were not happy with where they placed him.  They maybe should have kept the church open if they were so concerned.  Story
