<p>Easter is quickly approaching and many of us are turning our thoughts toward the Resurrection of Christ.</p><p>Easter is a time to rejoice in such a central tenet of the Christian faith. Easter is also a good time to ponder the truth of Christianity more deeply, and specifically look at evidence for Christ's Resurrection.</p><p>It is so important as a Christian to be assured of the truth of the Resurrection because as the Apostle Paul states, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (I Corinthians 15:13-14).</p><p>To that end, here are four points which are evidence that Christ truly did rise from the dead and we have much to rejoice about this Easter.</p>
St. Patrick lived his years as a great example for us today. But he didn't live it out simply by "the luck of the Irish," as some may say, for one theme shines through it all: God’s Presence and Sovereignty are powerful. St. Patrick was born in the fourth to fifth century A.D. He was originally taken as a captive to Ireland, but when he returned home to England after six years, he felt a strong call to go back to the land of his captivity and minister to the Irish people. St. Patrick traveled all over Ireland evangelizing to the Irish people and sharing his faith. Although he is known as "St. Patrick," he has not been officially canonized (made a saint) by the Vatican. We celebrate St. Patrick's day on March 17 because that is St. Patrick's feast day and the traditional day of his death.
