Legend has it that Patrick used the shamrock as an illustration of the Holy Trinity, One God in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Whether or not he used this plant, it’s true that he spent his life sharing about the God he loved.

He was kidnapped as a boy. A boy who did not believe in God.

While in captivity, God revealed Himself to Patrick, prompting him to put his trust in Christ. Through God’s provision, he escaped slavery and eventually returned to his family in Britain.

But, he could not forget the Irish people. He returned to the Emerald Isle and spent the rest of his life telling people of their need for Jesus.

And people still need Jesus. I do. And so do you.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. — Ephesians 3:16-19

  1. This is so beautiful! I didn’t know that, but what a perfect illustration of the Trinity. Makes me regret having told my son yesterday that the 4 leafed ones were the special ones. (I will have to let him know how wrong I was)

    Thanks for this- Would it be okay with you if I put a link on my blog to your post?

  2. Love it. Thanks for sharing the true meaning of a “holiday” that has a vastly different reputation!

  3. I love this! I’m can’t wait to share it with my family at dinner tonight. Thanks 🙂

  4. I tried explaining the trinity to my 3 yr old today with the shamrock. “ok, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Cow”. Me thinks we still need a little work on this one.
