A St Patrick’s Day word from Canon Stephen Neill, the man who discovered President Obama’s Irish roots:

Greetings to all my friends at The Obama Diary. It was a real joy to attend the White House St Patrick’s reception and experience the warmth of the welcome from your President and the First Lady. Our two countries share so much, including a great reverence for the legacy of St Patrick and I pray that the Spirit of St Patrick may bring blessings to all of you and those you care for.

God bless,

Stephen

Happy St Patrick’s Day y’all!
