St. Patrick is known for using the image of the shamrock to illustrate the Trinity, making a great mystery of God accessible to all people.
St Patrick is also the Patron Saint of Ireland and Nigeria.
In 2005, there were 19 million Catholics in Nigeria.
In 2010, that number increased to 52.6 million.
In 2016, there were 3.7 million Catholics in Ireland – a drop from 4million in 2011. And probably even less now.
What St Patrick has lost in Ireland, he has more than made up for in Nigeria.
May the Apostle of Ireland, St Patrick, intercede for Ireland’s salvation.
St Patrick, guigh orainn! ☘️🙏☘️
