Irish Stand

There will be an anti-Trump immigrant solidarity event organized by Aodhan O’Riordain, an Irish senator who made headlines last year when he called the newly elected Donald J. Trump a “fascist” during a speech in Parliament. The event, is called an “Irish Stand,” a rally and concert taking place on St. Patrick’s Day at Riverside Church. They plan on denouncing the new administration, its immigration policies and its many Irish-American members, including Vice President Mike Pence and Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon.

Green Beer

Looking for an authentic Irish pub to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day? Head over to Neary’s, who is also mark its 50th anniversary on the same date. This longstanding icon of the Upper East Side is a favorite of Michael Bloomberg and author Mary Higgins Clark. The menu is a collection of classics: corned beef and cabbage, broiled lamb chops, calf’s liver and even minute steak.

Happy St Patrick's Day

We leave you with the St. Patrick’s prayer. Born in Britain shortly before the 5th century, St. Patrick,  was taken captive to Ireland by raiders at the age of 16. He lived there for six years as a shepherd under harsh conditions and became intensely devoted to God in prayer, as he puts it, “because the spirit was then fervent within me.”

May the Strength of God pilot us.
May the Power of God preserve us.
May the Wisdom of God instruct us.
May the Hand of God protect us.
May the Way of God direct us.
May the Shield of God defend us.
May the Host of God guard us.
Against the snares of the evil ones.
Against temptations of the world

May Christ be with us!
May Christ be before us!
May Christ be in us,
Christ be over all!
May Thy Salvation, Lord,
Always be ours,
This day, O Lord, and evermore. Amen.

St. Patrick was so successful in preaching the gospel and organizing the Church in Ireland that he is largely credited with converting the Irish to Christianity. His emblems are the snakes that legends claim he drove out of Ireland and the Shamrock he used to great effect to explain the Holy Trinity. (This is a wonderful illustration of three distinct entities, the three leaves of the clover, making up one shamrock, much like the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit constitute One God!)
