The ancient Celtic tradition has taken the modern world by storm. Over the past decade seekers have collected all things Celtic_books, art, music, toys, clothing. But how much of it is authentic or lasting? In this highly distinctive book, June Sawyers has culled from a diverse pool of sources to offer readers a weekly dose of Celtic wisdom and witness. Beyond the famous trio of Patrick, Brigid, and Brendan, contemporary seekers will find kindred souls in famous and not-so-famous saints, prophets, martyrs, and poets who make up the fabric of the Celtic tradition. This book features short entries describing the lives, temptations, insights, and struggles of Celtic saints but also Celtic prophets, martyrs, and poets. Arranged weekly by either feast day, birth date, date of death, or alphabetically, each selection is preceded by a quotation from or about the saint, prophet, martyr, or poet and concludes with a thought to ponder. When appropriate, each entry is accompanied by a descriptive listing of significant sacred sites, museums, or other important landmarks. From Patrick and Columba to Seamus Heaney and William Butler Yeats, this is a timeless and timely, practical and wise book. Use it as your spiritual guide throughout the year.

About the Author:

June Skinner Sawyers is a freelance editor and writer with a special interest in Celtic culture and spirituality. A former religion editor, she is the author of numerous books.

From Booklist:

(It is Booklist policy that a book written by a regular contributor receive a brief descriptive announcement rather than a recommending review.)

To each brief sketch of figures ranging from fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-century saints to Renaissance Catholic martyrs to the nineteenth-century victims of the Highland clearances and the Irish famine to such modern writers as Flannery O'Connor and Seamus Heaney, Sawyers appends some points for spiritual reflection and short lists of sites associated with the figure and further readings.
