Not Just Saint Patrick

Being raised Catholic, I am aware of several of the more prominent saints’ days. Everybody goes overboard over Saint Patrick. The Irish get a lot of exposure. March 17, though is also Saint Gerturde’s Day.

Saint Gertrude, the patron saint of cats and the people who love them.

And in my humble opinion, loving cats is as much a pathway to holiness and separating the Irish from snakes.

    It’s historical fact.

    And don’t get me started. “Luck of the Irish”? They got raided by the Vikings, invaded by England, overrun by the Scots, allied with French(!), then had a famine.

    Luckiest thing that every happened was coming to America.
