Theology, Church, Culture & Running
Why do you think it's odd? Saint Patrick was a missionary bishop, so he is depicted here vested as a Bishop wearing the Episcopal Miter and carrying the crozier. He is holding the clover because St. Patrick reportedly used the 3 leaf clover to explain the doctrine of the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.
I have great respect for the real Patrick. I think this statue is odd because I highly doubt the real Patrick would have worn such a silly looking outfit.
