The Legend Of The Shamrock
Why is the shamrock such a vital part of St. Patrick’s Day?
The legend of the shamrock dates back to the time of St. Patrick. St. Patrick was drawn to the shamrock because it’s leafs formed a triad. It is said that St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the pagans about the Holy Trinity. Each leaf on the shamrock represented one part of the Trinity. The Trinity being The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are one in God.
40 plus years St. Patrick traveled around Ireland bringing Christianity to Ireland.
Today the Shamrock is the national flower of Ireland, and loved by millions around the world.
I hope that helps, and you wear a shamrock with pride.
