Someone asked me for a brief run through of the Saint Patrick poem.
stanza 1 and 2
a description of our Irish ancestors emigration to North America.
in ancient philosophy there was a tradition of Platonism which continued into the Early Church: the Truth was in the heavenly and unchanging realms far above the earth.
but the ancients of Ireland lived far below the eternal truths and were pagan until Patrick came.
celebration of the gifts of Ireland to the world.
