  • The verse-prayers of the Scots and Irish Gaelic-speaking Catholic tradition in this book are rich in doctrine, centred on Christ - especially in his Passion - attentive to his Mother, intimate as well as reverent, mindful of others and integrated into daily life. They attest a vibrant religious culture and express the soul of two related peoples.

    These prayers will enrich people in their prayer life and help them to pray in continuity and communion with a great ancestral cloud of witnesses who kept the faith and passed it on, often in times of desolation and trial.

    There are eight prayers from Scotland; the rest are from Ireland. The originals are in ?ür bPaidreacha Dóchais, the remarkable anthology compiled by Diarmuid O Laoghaire SJ, and are sensitively and painstakingly translated by Stephen Redmond SJ.
