It is said that when he was a missionary in Ireland, St Patrick was challenged by the pagans to explain the concept of the Trinity. As a former slave-shepherd in that same country, he did the unexpected — he reached down and plucked a shamrock leaf. Standing back up, he then asked: “Is this one leaf, or three? If one leaf, then why are there three lobes of equal size? If three leaves, then why is there just one stem? If you cannot explain so simple a mystery as the shamrock, how can you hope to understand one so profound as the Holy Trinity?” (Rose Publishing, The Trinity)
And that, according to the story, is how the shamrock leaf became the symbol of Christian Ireland.
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14
