This week, the Irish—and those who are Irish for a day—observe St. Patrick’s Day in honor of the 5thcentury saint who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isle. It is a day many of us hold dear, circled on our calendars as we look forward to celebrating in friendship. This week also marks the second week of Lent. But do we have the 40 days of Lent circled and prioritized in our spiritual lives? As we celebrate St. Patrick, remember what made him truly great: his faith and devotion to God. So let this week be the week we focus on our Lenten experience. Just as St. Patrick travelled the wide expanses of lush, green fields on his journey to share the Gospel, let us embrace the blessed walk we take with Christ each day of Lent.
