The brief prayers in this collection are both bold and poetic. Their language is refreshing and without pretense, so basic and yet so profound. The painterly illustrations gleam in sun-stoked golds, blues, and reds. Together, the colorful text and drawings make this a comforting companion.

For hundreds of years, the Celtic peoples have lived on the rugged westerly shores of Britain and France. They have known the fierceness of stormy seas and wild weather, and the beauty of pastures growing green under clear blue skies. They have known the uncertainty of life in a world that is beautiful, puzzling, and sometimes threatening.
Celtic Christians believe in a God who has made everything, both sunshine and storm, and they turn to God for help and protection in all the details of everyday life. Their traditional prayers, handed down through the generations, ask simply and earnestly for God's blessing: that God will guard us, guide us, and do good things for us through all our days.
Each day be glad to thee,
No day be sad to thee,
Life rich and satisfying.
From Carmina Gadelica
May God's goodness by yours,
And well and seven times well
May you spend your lives.
