  • A St. Patrick’s Day Poem

    On this day so full of mirthI think of Christianity in Ireland’s birth Brave Patrick forged the wayPreaching the Gospel to the pagans, a bold new foray The Celtic cross stands strongWith shamrock in bloom we sing this song Modernism and secularism – Satan’s wileIs attacking the faith in the Emerald Isle But God’s Word […]
