In Ireland, and in all other parish which hold St Patrick’s day it I’m Irish shirt as their patron such as my own, this feast is upgraded to a solemnity. In fact, in Ireland it is a holy day of obligation. Catholics of Ireland must celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It is celebrated on the date of the good saint’s death March 17th each year. On the General Roman Calendar it is an optional memorial. If you wish to join in the celebration, go ahead honor the holy apostle to Ireland with us. Somehow a food truck managed to get to us with some food for us. It was not entirely our food cooked in our unit’s kitchens. The quantity was made up by adding corned beef cans. These cans were of US origin. Apparently they were part of US troops rations.
If you go to Mass in a Catholic church on March 17th, at least in the West, St Patrick’s day it I’m Irish shirt almost assuredly will be celebrated. Parishes under his patronage will likely be celebrating further afterward, perhaps eating, and drinking, placing music, and dancing, and smoking all with the dispensation of the bishop of course; it is Lent after all. It is very good. It is well known that most Hindus will not eat beef at all at any time of the year.
