We’re launching this thread on St Patrick – and shortly, a thread to mark the Feast of St Joseph – ahead of the Feast Days, which are, of course, 17th and 19th March respectively. That is because, in preparation for our usual closure during Holy Week, we’ve closed all the discussion threads early. The atmosphere on the blog has not been good recently, and so we need time to recollect ourselves as the end of Lent approaches, and we enter into the events of Holy Week.
This thread is a purely devotional and fun thread. As with all Feast Day threads, we may post favourite prayers, hymns litanies, etc. And a few good clean fun jokes will also be welcome. This is not the place for controversy – it is a Feast Day thread to learn more about the saint of the day and to share favourite prayers and jokes. Enjoy!
