28 Inspiring Bible Verses for St. Patrick’s Day About the TRUE Meaning

Although St. Patrick’s Day may be better known for corned beef and cabbage, this holiday is rooted in honoring a saint who loved the Lord. Whether you are looking for scripture to share or want to teach your children about the reason we celebrate, here are 28 Bible Verses for St. Patrick’s Day that will strengthen your faith!

Truthfully, I’ve never thought of St. Patrick’s Day as being a religious holiday. I know it should be obvious since it’s dedicated to a “saint.” When I started to study the reason why we celebrate certain holidays, I was really surprised to find out that we are honoring a man who was passionate about sharing the gospel.

What’s funny is that I grew up going to a Catholic Church and I never put the two together. So as an adult, I love that St. Patricks day is dedicated to a man who wholeheartedly loved God and wanted to share his love with others. There is so much we can learn from him.

If you want to learn more about why we celebrate St. Patricks Day, this article does a really good job of explaining it!
