Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig (in Gaelic)!
Saint Patrick is the great saint and patron of the Irish people. His intensely spiritual nature, his enthusiasm and his strength in action enabled him to surmount tremendous difficulties and to gradually bring the Christian faith to all of Ireland.
In the book The Masters and Their Retreats by Mark and Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Sanat Kumara tells us that it was by his calling that Saint Patrick was raised up to be an apostle of the Christ and to subdue the seed of serpent in Ireland. Sanat Kumara speaks of his son Patrick:
Enslaved by Pagans
“Let us go to the mountain in the land of Erin [Ireland] where a youth enslaved by pagans is in prayer through the day and into the night. So fervent is the love of God within him that the fire of his heart is a light midst snow and ice.
“He lived on the mountain, alone with God, tending his master’s herds. And on that mountain, I called my son Patrick, that out of the condition of servitude there might be produced the miracle fire of freedom.
“It was late fourth century A.D. and the clans of the Irish—the reincarnated tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh—were ruled by a host of kings. They served not the Lord God, nor had they the salvation of his Son.
Patrick's Mission of the Violet Flame
“Therefore I, the Ancient of Days, called my son, freeborn, unto slavery that I might deliver him to freedom and to the mission of implanting the violet flame in the hearts of my true sons and daughters that they might one day carry it to the New World in the name of Saint Germain.
“To him I gave the vision of the people of Erin whose seed would one day ignite the fires of freedom on every shore and in every nation.
“Your own prophet Mark derived his fervor from that lineage of the Ancient of Days, which goes back to the emerald isle. And the Irish eyes of Thomas Moore, poet and prince of my heart, yet smile through the sternness of El Morya and his twinkle of mirth always needed on earth.
Saint Patrick as an Anointed Apostle
“Finally restored to his kinsfolk after six years of humbling himself before me on the mountain, tending sheep as he would soon feed my sheep, Patrick heard the voices of the souls of my children crying out from the land of Erin for deliverance: ‘We beseech thee, holy youth, to come and walk among us once more.' Indeed they remembered him when he had walked among them as a prophet in Israel, rebuking their waywardness in the name of the Lord. Now they awaited the message of their salvation through Messiah's anointed apostle.
Saint Patrick Casts Out Snakes – the Seed of Serpent
“Patrick prepared for his mission under the lineage of the ruby ray and with the saints of the inner Church. And that mission, my beloved, was to subdue the seed of Serpent in Ireland and to raise up the tribes of Israel, the remnant of Joseph's seed who would be Christ-bearers to the nations. [Joseph, youngest and most favored son of Jacob, had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, whom Jacob blessed as his own. Reincarnated in Britain and the U.S.A., they carry the flame of the twelve tribes of Israel.]
“Empowered of the Holy Ghost and bearing the Staff of Jesus, he wielded such power and wrought such miracles that pagan chiefs and decadent druids bowed in submission to this rod of Aaron that, in the new tongue, became the rod of Erin.
“So perilous was the mission of the shamrock saint of the fifth ray that he wrote in his Confession: ‘Daily I expect either a violent death or to be robbed and reduced to slavery or the occurrence of some such calamity. I have cast myself into the hands of Almighty God, for He rules everything; as the Prophet sayeth, “Cast thy care upon the Lord, and He Himself will sustain thee.”‘
“Well might you emulate the courage and the humility of my son Patrick when he boldly challenged Prince Corotick. Such is the true Work and Word of the saints of the ruby ray who, with all due seriousness, receive the sign of their coming in the taking up of serpents.
“Thousands upon thousands of the descendants of Jacob's favorite son were baptized and confirmed by the Lord Jesus through my son Patrick.
“Like the apostle Paul, he bound the power of Serpent's seed that had invaded the land of Erin; and like him, he healed their sick, he restored sight—both inner and outer—to their blind, and he raised Abram's seed—dead in body and in spirit—to new life through the indwelling Christ by the Word of Christ Jesus, his beloved.
Ascended Master Saint Patrick
“Now the ascended master Saint Patrick stands with me on the summit of Mount Aigli where, at the close of his earthly sojourn, he retreated forty days and forty nights, fasting in body and in spirit that he might be filled with the light of the Ancient of Days.
“There on that occasion fifteen hundred years ago, I summoned all the saints of Erin—the light of Aaron's priesthood and the lightbearers of the Christic seed of Joseph—past, present, and future, to pay homage to him who was father to them all…
“My beloved, many of you were among the souls of the saints who came to Patrick in his final hours on the mountain. You saluted him in the glory of God that was upon him, and to him you were the promise that his Word and Work would be carried to golden shores unto a golden age of Christ peace and enlightenment.”
