ART OF THE WEEK

I know nothing about this, but it seemed very surrealistic to me, so I thought I would share it with you folks.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSONS OF THE WEEK

St. Patrick

Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland [and ] is the primary patron saint of Ireland.

Early medieval tradition credits him [ ] as the founder of Christianity in Ireland, converting a society practicing a form of Celtic polytheism. He has been generally so regarded ever since, despite evidence of some earlier Christian presence in Ireland.

According to Patrick’s autobiographical account, known as the Confessio, when he was about sixteen years old, he was captured by Irish pirates from his home in Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland, looking after animals; by his account, he lived there for six years before escaping and returning to his family in Britain, where he became a cleric.

Patrick eventually returned to Ireland, probably settling in the west of the island, where, in later life, he became a bishop and ordained subordinate clerics.

Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on 17 March, the supposed date of his death. It is celebrated inside and outside Ireland. (Source: Wikipedia)

Ides of March

During the coming week, some of you may hear the phrase “Ides of March”, so if you aren’t already aware of this reference, this may help you to understand the phrase.

The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history, as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.
