Format: Paperback
This is a marvelous little book on Celtic Spirituality. The authors use both well-known and lesser-known saints as icons into spiritual wisdom. You will find this book is both a great read and useful tool for understanding the spirituality of the Celtic Saints - and applying their wisdom to everyday life.

I have used this book with high school students and adults and all have enjoyed the wisdom that can be gleaned from these pages. This book is useful for both those new to Celtic Spirituality and the Celtophile.

Holy Companions shares the spiritual practices in short meditative bios, for sixteen Celtic Saints. These are men and women whose Christian life was reflective of the prayer and power we read about in the New Testament. Their lives were not easy, even so, their faith was resolute and the graces they share with us today are remarkable. Two favorites, I never had heard of until this little book: Saint Non of Wales, known for HOLY MOTHERING and disearning when to let go of that mothering and move on. The other, Saint Winefride, also of Wales with an insight into facing wounding and healing, death and resurrection in our own rising from the detours in our own lives. I found it most invaluable. There is an excellent bibliography for further reading. This is a gem of a collection that will be enjoyed often. It is indeed a Holy Companion.

I am carrying this book behind my Bible in my "industrial" Bible cover.

It not only allows me to share some great praise and worship with others, but leaves it handy for me for quieter moments.

I just ordered the "Carmina Gadelica", because I wanted more.

This book definitely gives you a spiritual feel of the early Celtic Church in the British Isles. The histories of the Celtic Saints and their long lost prayers are still appropriate today. These courageous men and women are good examples in how we should live our faith. Their prayers can easily be incorporated into your daily devontional.
