Today is St. Patrick’s Day, commemorating Ireland’s conversion to Christianity in the fourth century by an Englishman, who was later declared a Catholic Saint.  Today, Ireland is one of the most Christian nations in the Western World.  The Protestants and Catholics of Northern Ireland are deeply divided, with a long and bloody history of sectarian violence.   

St. Patrick's Day - not an event or day which I will be celebrating.
