About "The Celtic Way of Prayer"
To recover our Celtic roots is to reclaim a forgotten heritage, one that will deepen our prayer and enlarge our vision. This book shows how the Celtic way of praying drew upon its pre-Christian past as well as on the fullness of the Gospel, and how it touched not only the mind but also the heart and the imagination. Drawing on material not easily available to the ordinary reader, Esther de Waal unlocks a treasury that will stratle with its power and originality. The reader is introduced to early Irish litanies, to medieval Welsh praise poems, to the wealth of blessings that come from the oral tradition to make praying a part of daily living. The book has been updated to include a new Introduction and a complete new chapter on healing for today's world.
