Overview

Daily prayers based on the spiritual riches of the ancient Celtic tradition.

This lavishly illustrated daily prayer book draws on the great spiritual insights and wisdom of the Celtic church, offering prayers and Scripture readings for every morning and evening of the week.

Each day Celtic Benediction invites readers to meditate on a different aspect of the creation story from Genesis. On Sunday the theme is light. In the morning, the prayers and readings lead us to seek the light of the life of God in all his creatures. At night, we meditate on the light that no darkness can overcome as we bring the world and its needs to God. And so on through each day of the week: water, the fruitful earth, the animal world, humanity, playful rest, and all that God has made draw us into intimate prayer. Related Scripture readings are also given for each day of the year, making this a book to use constantly.

Illustrated throughout with colored panels from the Lindisfarne Gospels, Celtic Benediction offers contemporary Christians a unique devotional experience to treasure for a lifetime.

Special points of interest:

  • Beautifully written prayers for every day of the week
  • Fully illustrated with color panels from the Lindisfarne Gospels
  • Captures the spiritual riches of the Celtic tradition
  • Makes a wonderful gift book

    Highly Recommended - you will treasure it!

    Newell uses the beauty of Celtic spiritual imagery and combines it with a lyrical poetic touch and heartfelt prayers. The prayers are simply lovely.
