HOUSE RESOLUTION No. 54. WHEREAS, By common consent, the 17th of March, popularly known as St. Patrick's Day, has become a universal holiday, throughout Christendom; and,

WHEREAS, By agreement of sacred and profane history, Patrick, the evangelizer of Ireland, is a world figure, as truly as the greatest conquerors, kings and law-givers.

He appeals to us as a man of our day and our kind. We trace his footsteps in a modern land, edified by the fruits of his labors. In his life and works the age of miracles is prolonged and a connection established between the ordinary and the supernatural. Patrick was the people's patron. Classes and distinctions disappeared before him, and king and peasant knelt together and received his benediction. He conquered by the gentle but compelling power of love.

Such were the labors of St. Patrick, that his fame expands year after year and with the centuries, so that in every land where Christ is received or revered, Patrick is honored as his great tribune;

WHEREAS, In this, the greatest and freest of all the nations of the earth, where the right is guaranteed to all men to hold and proclaim the convictions of their conscience and where men of all beliefs and no belief abide in harmony, St. Patrick is honored and revered as a man of great virtue, singular capacity for organization and the greatest breath of sympathies; therefore, be it

Resolved. by the House of Representatives of the Forty-ninth General Assembly of Illinois, That we join the states and the nations of the world in honoring the memory of Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland and the great promoter of Christian civilization.
