About the Book:
The Church in Ireland is fortunate to boast a rich array of venerable individuals who have devoted their lives to serving the Christian faith in various ways across many centuries. In The Rock From Which You Were Hewn, Fr John S. Hogan and Dr Patrick Kenny invite a host of eminent clergy and theologians to explore the lives of those renowned Irish Christians whose causes for canonisation
are currently open and others whose great devotion to Our Lord continues to inspire the faithful today. This fascinating collection includes contributions from the likes of Fr Columba McCann OSB, Patrick Corkery SJ, Sr Cecilia Sweeney FMS and Fr Bryan Lawless and profiles figures such as Catherine McCauley, Mary Aikenhead and Ignatius Rice alongside less familiar names who have also served the Church selflessly in more recent times. This inspiring work takes its name from the oft-quoted passage in Isaiah and is essential reading for anyone interested in learning from the spirituality of Ireland and its people.
