St. Patrick’s Day

We have it from our Irish confreres: the feast of Saint Patrick is not negotiable. It must be celebrated on March 17 of each year. But what do you know about St. Patrick’s Day? These two videos, in the language of Shakespeare of course, were selected to give you an insight into the history of St. Patrick’s Day (4 minutes), and the second a full fletched movie about the Irish legend surrounding the history of St. Patrick (one hour and a half). Happy feastday to our Irish confreres.

That is what he wrote in a message dated 10th February, a message addressed to the participants to the Popular Movements Meeting in Modesto, California, from the 16th to the 19th of February 2017.
