The Feasts of St. Patrick and St. Gertrude

The patron saint of gardeners, travelers, widows, recently deceased people, the sick, the poor, the mentally ill, and travelers in search of lodging. 
People call upon Gertrude for protection from mice and rats, fever, insanity, and mental illness.
Cat lovers revere Gertrude of Nivelles most of all.

The patron saint of Ireland.
He was a Christian missionary given credit with converting Ireland to Christianity in the AD 400s.
Irish legend says that Saint Patrick used the shamrock as an educational symbol to explain the Holy Trinity to non believers.

A St. Patrick's Day gift!
Please take care my friends; some of what we must do is counterintuitive, yet cool heads must prevail for the maximum number of humans can escape unscathed.


Let's not forget, it's Two-zday!

Sending all of my love to Sparky and his mom;
May the powers of the universe converge to keep Sparky with us for awhile longer.
