THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! - a day when we remember the roots of the
Christian Faith in Ire-land. There is no doubt that to be a Christian in
Ireland today is difficult. Often it is easier to hide our faith, to
avoid ridicule, arguments and de-bates which can wear us down. However,
today we should take example and energy from Saint Patrick. His story
was not a walk in the park either. We celebrate our Christian identify
today and celebrate the Gospel message that a courageous Patrick brought
to us, a message that had preserved and passed on, a message that is
very relevant to today’s world and which continues to nourish and
Take heart from the parable of the Mustard Seed in the Gospel today.
The mustard seed plant is sometimes wild and out of control. Author and
activist, Shane Claiborne, compares it to kudzu, a wild vine that could
blanket entire mountain are-as, smother trees, even crack stone
buildings and footpaths. The shrub was banned in certain areas of
Palestine because of how it could completely take over garden. When we
are struggling with being a Christian in modern Ireland, feeling excuses
in a world that wants to forget God, we can take courage from the
parable of the mustard seed. It grew in places where it was not wanted.
You might recall the people in your own life who nourished your faith
and guided you along your spiritual path.
"I arise today, through God’s strength to pilot me, God’s might to
uphold me, God’s wisdom to guide me, God’s eye to look before me, God’s
ear to hear me, God’s word to speak for me, God’s hand to guard me,
God’s shield to protect me." (St Patrick’s Breastplate)
