Light to the World: Reflections from Kylemore Abbey

by Kylemore Abbey (Editor)




Built in the 19th century against the backdrop and stark beauty of the barren mountains, bogs, and lakes of Connemara, Ireland, Kylemore Castle has become an abbey for Benedictine Nuns. This small book reflects the prayer of the nuns throughout the year, as they follow the unfolding liturgical cycle parallel to the seasons. Evocative photographs from the grounds of the Abbey lead in to meditation and prayer. A selection of psalms from the daily office of the nuns gives words with which the reader can reach out to the Creator, responding to the stirrings in the soul inspired by personal experience of natural beauty, life, and human endeavor.
