In 461, Patrick passed from this life. Tradition suggests his body was placed upon a wagon to which were harnessed two young unbroken bullocks which were allowed to wonder about. Where they stopped, at Dun-Lethglaisse (now known as Downpatrick), there Patrick was buried. Later, a church was built above his grave, and like many Christian leaders, he was venerated and worshiped by other Christians—something that Jesus Christ never intended for his servants. Patrick is one of the most widely known Christian missionaries in the history of the Church. Through his spiritual descendants, he cast an influence over the British Isles, Europe and the world that has well outlived him. His life and ministry are memorialized annually on March 17.

Though this struggle is not new to the life of Christianity, it is new to many Christians who may be tempted to compromise or completely capitulate in matters of Christian belief and behavior. The Bible is replete with examples of those who compromised or capitulated in this way, but Jesus Christ has warned that only "heRead more...

The single most important event in early Christianity was the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Long before the Church celebrated the birth of Jesus in the Christmas season, Christians celebrated the resurrection of Christ from the grave. In contemporary Christianity and secular society, Christmas now receives more interest than Easter, but early believers understood that the Church was established upon the suffering and resurrection of ChrRead more...

Each month offers new and exciting opportunity for Christians to celebrate their faith. If observed without regard to the rest of the year, any given month—by itself—may appear stark and lean. But, within the context of the Christian life, each month enjoys greater vividness and importance. If one piece of a stained glass window is missing, the design or story of the window appears incomplete. The months of the year should help to compose a beautRead more...

May is the fifth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and in the Southern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent of November in the Northern Hemisphere and vice versa. May is named after the Greek goddess Maia, whom the Romans called Bona Dea, goddess of fertility—something quiet common within paganism. The month of May in many ways stands as the gateway to the summer. But May is not only useful for what it introduces but alsoRead more...
