St. Patrick

St. Patrick says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

St. Patrick is holding a big walking stick [shillelagh]. He says: “You see this walking stick? It can be used as a weapon to strike out against people and as a support in walking. It is much the same with the tongue. It can be used to tear down or to support and build up. It is what is in the heart that determines and directs the use of the walking stick and the tongue. This is why it is important that hearts and lives be governed by Holy Love.”

“Anything good can be convoluted and used towards an evil end if it lacks motivation in Holy Love. But, at the same time, what is evil can be turned to good through Holy Love.”
