Devotees of Irish spirituality, and those interested in Irish heritage, will cherish this authentic collection of Celtic wisdom and prayer. Assembled from the original six volumes of Carmichael's Carmina Gadelica by noted Celtic author, Esther de Waal, this rich array includes elements of piety that address every aspect of life. Morning prayers ask God's favor for a new beginning, while night prayers thankfully recall the blessings of the day gone by. Every aspect of daily life is sanctified with prayers for hearth, home, work, and play. Blessings, invocations, and good wishes catch the Celtic spirit affirming the presence and power of the Creator.
