Today is March 1st, this begins my 17 Days of St. Patricks Day!
Day 1 Fun Fact: According to legend, St. Patrick used the 3-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people.
According to http://www.columbia.edu/cu/augustine/arch/sbrandt/trinity.htm
The Trinity tells us that there are three Persons in one Divine Nature. The names Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are names of persons. God can serve as either a name for the Father or a name for the Divine Nature. Before delving into the relative meaning of Persons and Natures it will be useful to make it clear that these terms refer to distinctly different things.

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. According to legend, each leaf represents something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.
