When about to baptise [king Aongus of Munster], Patrick thrust his pastoral staff, by its sharp iron point, into the earth -- as he thought. But it was through the foot of Aongus he thrust it.

And Aongus answered simply, "Because I thought it was part of the ceremony."

--Seumas MacManus

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
