We live not only our own lives but, whether we know it or not, also the life of our time. Laurens van der PostThe 'life of our time' is not an easy one in Ireland right now. But on the day that's in it, let us remember those who have gone before us and endured much, much more than we are called on to endure right now.
Let us also take our cue from St. Patrick: clearing an island this big of snakes was no mean task! And he surely didn't do it alone. As the old Irish saying goes: together we are stronger.
Happy St Patrick's Day!
