Many people don't seem to understand that St. Patrick was really British!- born and raised in Britain around 460 AD, kidnapped by raiders at the age of 16 and then taken to Ireland. There Patrick worked as a slave, tending the sheep for his master and spending many lonely days thinking about God and missing his family.

After six years he was told in a dream that a boat was ready to take him home.  Patrick simply left his position and walked to the coast, found the boat and returned to Britain.  But it wasn't long before Patrick had another dream encouraging him to return to Ireland and to spread the Gospel to the people there.

After reuniting with his family, Patrick went to Auxerre, France where he studied and entered the priesthood under the guidance of the missionary St. Germain.In 431, Pope St. Celestine I consecrated St. Patrick Bishop of the Irish, and sent him to Ireland to spread "The Good News," or Christian Gospel, to the Pagans there.

Do you really love God?
If ye love me, keep my commandments. -John 14:15
True Sabbath is Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, RC changed the Sabbath day and admits it:

“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act… And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895
How important is to observe the Sabbath
But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.’Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.…-Exodus 31:13, 31:14
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 5:17

You can´t say you haven´t been warned at the Judgement day

The Jewish Sabbath was Friday- Saturday. The church started celebrating on Sunday because Jesus Christ rose from the dead on Sunday morning.

I go to church every Sunday and celebrate a "little Easter" in celebration of Christ's resurrection.

Not sure what you're problem is. Guess you just don't like St. patrick's day, got up on the wrong side of the bed or something.
