  • John J O R?¡ord?íin traces the fortunes of Irish Catholic Spirituality from its Celtic origins, through the reforms of the late medieval period, the influences of the Reformation, and the dramatic and traumatic nineteenth-century changes which revolutionised and, in many ways, vandalised the traditional Irish approach to God.
    In his concluding chapters he highlights some of the early Celtic influences in contemporary Irish spirituality and considers the future of the church which he loves.

    When the church is seen as institution only, it is difficult for people on the margins who are more attuned to traditional faith-ways to maintain comfortable links with it. Too often church membership and practice is reduced to being all in or all out. The criterion for belonging is narrowed down to only one element of the many-splendoured Christian tradition. At her wise and generous best, the church has always been relaxed and generous about her boundaries.
