So begins the famous work written by the hand of the famous St. Patrick called, "Confessions of St. Patrick." This certainly sounds entirely different from the St. Patrick we all love and celebrate today... St. Patrick's Day is one of the most festive holidays of the calendar year. Yet, most of us know little of this man for whom we all must wear "a touch of green" on March 17. Though named after a saint, few of us think of St. Patrick's Day as a "religious holiday." Yet, if Patrick had his way about this holiday named after him, surely things would be different.
