About the Book:
This beautiful devotional book guides us through a year in the company of the Irish saints. For each day of the year there is a fascinating biographical account of an Irish saint, along with a re fleection designed to prompt the reader to consider how these venerated figures can shape the spiritual lives of the faithful today.

The intention has been to be as historically accurate as possible but also to re flect on the inner meaning of some stories and legends that have grown up around particular saints, with a view to exploring their spiritual value for a contemporary audience.

In addition to the universally recognised patron saints – Patrick, Brigid and Columba – the reader will be inspired by the stories of hundreds of extraordinary Irish men and women across the centuries whose heroism and streadfast faith will inspire, guide and encourage Christians on their pilgrim path today.
