An Irish Angel Poem
by Evangeline B. White
Feeling green on this Irish Saint's day,
An angel came down from heaven to say,
"It's not about whiskey and beer,
and parades with flagrant cheer.
The day celebrates lives born anew,
With great hope for all, not just a few.
St. Patrick told of a love so divine.
The Irish turned from their sins and got in line.
He faced the Druids and their gods they threw down.
They worshipped Jesus in the hills and all through town.
A great revival in Ireland it was.
From a slave to an immigrant just because
Patrick found the love of a Savior.
That love so changed his behavior.
He travelled through Ireland to those who
made him a slave and told them he knew
the God who saw what they did but loved them too.
The Patron Saint of Ireland's heart had changed.
And his mission to tell others did not wane.
So now you know how it all came to be.
St. Patrick's Day's about changed hearts you see."
Before Patrick was a saint, he was an atheist. Through some divine dreams and circumstances, he became a Christian and was convicted to go back to Ireland. In the country that enslaved him, he told everyone of a Savior- Jesus- who saved his soul. Christianity spread because of his testimony. He started many churches, monasteries, and Christian towns in his newfound home of Ireland.
And the rest is history.
