Proof Positive quotes Saint Patrick:

Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
-St. Patrick

Google, while not mentioning Saint Patrick by name, posts this on Saint Patrick’s Day:

As a Christian, I’ll venture as a default position that Saint Patrick would be as excited about the attention directed at himself, and not Christ, as, say, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be.
Heaven forbid anything ever be about me personally, in all seriousness.

    Yeah. I thought it might be appropriate to have folks give a thought to why Patrick was called a “saint” and something other than green beer and driving the snakes out of Ireland.
    (Though we could use someone to drive all the snakes out of Washington!!!)

    Favorite St. Patrick’s Day Trivia fact: St. Patrick wasn’t Irish.(Roman father/mother, from Gaul)
    Maureen O’Hara, Grace Kelly, and Maureen Sullivan are reason enough to celibrate St. Patrick’s Day. 😉
    St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland? That would account for the Kennedys’ presence in America.
    St. Patrick’s Day, St. Valentine’s Day, etc.. have been exsanguinated of their Christianity by the Secular World. Druids can practice their paganism freely, but Christ, and his followers? They must not be named.

    If Saint Patrick were alive, he’s be speaking Italian and would be quite disappointed that the snakes came back to Ireland and took over the country.
