Declan Edited

oh gosh here we are comming up on St. Patricks Day and by some miracle of God i am forced to write about some saint named Declan no, you don't know his name i did'nt either but God has a way of making the unknown known they say He does'nt share His glory but that's a lie. God does give glory or i would'nt be writing about this fellow Declan people talk about St.Patrick but he was'nt the first to bring christianity to Ireland 15 years before St. Patrick arrived Declan brought Irelands first christian settlement in Ardmore with a monastary that spread christianity through Ireland. but the one thing that impressed me about St. Declan the most was that he has a stone named after him a stone that after a prayer crossed an ocean to retrieve a bell and on another occassion guided a boat to safty they say that the stone still sits on a somewhat less impressive beach in Ardmore i'm writing this because by mistake i thought Declan was code for "the klan" which we all know is not so impresive in the united states and as an apology i was wrong but a little light from God replaced a bulb that had went out and the name Declan has a shiny new coat to wear this St.Patricks Day

I didn't find any racist remarks in this. Love the history lesson though, it seems we don't hear of these things very often.

It takes a very strong person to admit that they have made a mistake and apologize for what they have done..I am glad that I got the history lesson from this..Sara
