    While I am deeply suspicious of all books with Celtic tagged onto them (they all too often consist of New Age nonsense), this little book is a beautiful presented but brief account of the saints of what we should more properly call Early Christian Ireland, such as Patrick, Brigid and Columcille, along with brief accounts of the learning and prayers of the era. Many will find this a delightful little introduction to what is a great and often remote period of our history, yet one which speaks to us with a very personal voice and an inspired spirituality.

    Here is one prayer in the words of A P Graves:

    Jesu, from today
    Guide us on our way,
    So shall we no moment wasting,
    Follow Thee with holy hasting.
    Led by Thy dear Hand
    To the Blessed land.

    - The Irish Catholic
