Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! When I was in the editing phase of my first book, Discovering Your Stream, I wrote about Angels and Saints and how St. Patrick is my patron saint.
So right about now you are thinking Colleen you are a Spiritualist, how can you believe in Saints. Well I want to believe that my Catholic upbringing was part of my belief system. I may no longer believe in the dogma of the church, but believe that the saints are something that I can take with me. There are teachings and those that are part of that religion that inspire me.
Just look at Pope Francis and for those in Western New York the good works of Father Baker. I believe that people like Mother Theresa and Pope John Paul did wonderful things to help spirituality. They gave us things to think about to grow as Spiritual beings.
So today on St. Patrick’s Day remember that just because you may no longer part of a specific religion you can take aspects of them with you in your Spiritual Path. Spirituality is unique for all of us and we should embrace things that set our heart on fire. The people, places and teachings that assist us in who we are becoming. It is when we embrace each other that things start to happen for the better, not the walls we put between us. So on this St. Patrick’s Day take time and have fun.
With a name like Colleen Patricia I think that there is some Irish in me. This is an Irish holiday after all…
