The Celtic tradition continues to captivate readers. Centuries old, it seems to speak to the modern world with a fresh voice. In Holy Companions, readers are invited to get to know and journey with eighteen Celtic saints. The authors have provided a theme inspired by each saint, along with a brief biography, a reflection on what the saint's life and words may mean to us today, and some spiritual exercises and practices that grow out of that life and work. Written accessibly, this is an excellent book for individual exploration or group study "Holy Companions stands out as an exceptionally well-written and balanced introduction to the saints of this richly personal and deeply corporate tradition. The book successfully guides us into a way of reflecting and praying with these saints as it introduces the stories and legends associated with them.” —J. Philip Newell, former warden of Iona Abbey in Scotland.
