Rivers of Green (Envy)
As a Catholic of French-Canadian ancestry, I continue to be upset that the Irish Catholics have their Patron Saint’s Feast day on the secular U.S. calendar. Rise up my French-Canadian brothers and sisters! This lack of diversity and inclusion cannot be tolerated!
I call for October 19th to be a reserved spot on the U.S. calendar for Saint Jean de Brebeuf-a patron Saint of Canada!!
On October 19th, everyone in the U.S. may feel free to engage in stereotypically French behavior like: wearing scarves and berets, smoking unfiltered cigarettes wherever they darn well please, be snooty with anyone who does not speak French, drink lots of Burgundy and eat Blue Brie with baquettes.
This shamrock emphasis is not fair! Does it have ANYTHING really to do with the Trinity or is it some Leprachaun thang?
Outrageous? Hey, it's not like the day has anything to do with the actual Saint Patrick anyway!
In any event, look at St. Brebeuf, he's SO ready to party! Just look at him! Those Jesuits throw the best parties! Ask
