Shamrock and its meaning

Shamrock is a type of clover with three leaves. The most well-known meanings were imparted to the shamrock by St. Patrick, who compared the plant’s tri-part leaves to the Holy Trinity. Patrick demonstrated the meaning of the Three-in-One by picking a shamrock from the grass and showing it to his listeners. Each leaf representing: Father, Son , Holy Ghost
The three portrusions may also be symbolic of the three theological virtues found in first Corinthians 13:13: Faith, Love, Hope
 The Irish have considered shamrocks as good-luck symbols,  and today people of many other nationalities also believe they bring good luck. Sometimes shamrocks can be found with four leaves. These are rare and considered to be very lucky for the finder.

So love that you posted the history of the clover leaf...My girls were so upset at church when their teacher told them that there was nothing Christian about MArch 17th( StPatrick's day)..LOL They corrected her with the trinty story.
