The Center for the New Age is entered in Sedona’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade this year. Our float is our new all electric BMW and while it’s color is not green. It’s energy is.
Why such a big deal over this St. Patrick guy? He wasn’t even Irish. He was born into a Wealthy Romano British family. His father was a Deacon in the Christian Church. Not the Catholic Church like I was told by the Nuns In New Jersey ?
Well they say when he was 16, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken captive to be a slave in Ireland. After many years, he had a dream in which God told him to flee captivity and return to Britain. Upon returning, he quickly joined the Church in Gaul and became a priest.
In 432, he was called back to Ireland as a Bishop to Christianize the Irish from their Native polytheism. He used the Shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Pagan Irish. He became the Champion Of Irish Catholicism. To be declared a Saint , I figure you had to become pretty enlightened. There had to be evidence of Miracles. God told him in a dream. Sounds New Ageee to me.
In 1903, March 17 became a public holiday in Ireland and soon became National holiday. Three and four day Festivals became popular and spread to Argentina, Canada, Russia Great Britain, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Switzerland and The US.
So why am I writing this article for the New Age newsletter? Well because I am Irish and I’m a recovering Catholic, I love parades, and we have all evolved from somewhere. But really, why not celebrate that one of us was actually declared a saint and actually made a difference in our world. Thank you Saint Patrick We are so grateful and not just for the parade.
