Today is the anniversary of the death of Padraig, Bishop of Munster, Leinster, and Connacht.
It's origin is a Christian Holiday, which became a Catholic Holiday and reprieve Lenten obligations1, which has translated into a Secular Bacchus Holiday.

I believe the following sums up the sentiment.



Perhaps it was the same when Christians began seeing Rabbits and Eggs supplant the Cross and the purple muslin; or when the Founders of America began to note the celebration of the 4th of July more about celebrating than remember about freedom.

With a little discomfort and a little longing for how it was.


End Note:
1= It was with certain interest that both Pope John Paul II and the Archbishop of Canterbury both gave specific permission for the Irish of Tulsa to break Lenten obligations for 17 March which have not been rescinded.
