I have always bee fascinated with the legend of how St. Patrick used the shamrock to teach the ancient Irish about the Trinity–Three in One. Lately, I have felt drawn to learn more about Celtic Christianity. There is even something about the pictures of green pastures and blue seas of Ireland that seem to be calling me. The beads I chose to use on this rosary reflect that calling.
As St. Patrick wrote in The deers Cry, also known as St. Patrick’s Breastplate, I am reminded see Christ within me, behind me, before me, beside me, beneath me, above me…in the mouth of friend and stranger.
