As pagans, the Irish people were passionate about song and poetry. As Christians, they passion, combined with a fiery love for Christ, produced some of the finest and touching spiritual poetry of the Church.
In 30 Days with the Irish Mystics, join Thomas J. Craughwell as he meditates on the works of the great Irish saints.
From the well-known (Saint Patrick and Saint Brigid) to the obscure (Saint Molaise an Saint Ita), the prayerful poetry of the Irish Mystics is uplifting, beautiful, and devotional.
Supplemented with prayers and meditations for each day, 30 Days with the Irish Mystics, is not only a deeper look at the majesty and holiness of the great Irish saints, it is a fine devotional, walking you through 30 days or prayerful song.
