Publisher's Summary

Esther de Waal introduces listeners to monastic prayer and praise (the foundation stone of Celtic Christianity), early Irish litanies, medieval Welsh praise poems, and the wealth of blessings derived from an oral tradition that made prayer a part of daily life.

Through this invigorating book, listeners enter a world in which ritual and rhythm, nature and seasons, images and symbols play an essential role. A welcome contrast to modern worship, Celtic prayer is liberating and, like a living spring, forever fresh.

©1997 Esther de Waal (P)2008 St. Anthony Messenger Press

What the Critics Say

"In this beautiful book, retreat leader de Waal recovers the spirituality of Celtic religion and integrates it into a kind of guidebook. Through Celtic poems, songs, Irish litanies and medieval Welsh praise poems, de Waal conducts the listener on what she calls a pereginatio, or journey into prayer." (Publishers Weekly)

    "A Broadening Christian Experience"

    I've read and listened to the Celtic Way of Prayer by Esther de Waal several times now. The Celtic response to Jesus during the so called Dark Ages, in the rest of Europe, was really a time of beautiful enlightenment in the spirit of Jesus in spite of the big Roman church of that time wanting to rein them in. The author does a splendid job of bringing the listener into the richness of that era. This book is a view into the holistic beauty that our Father has always wanted for us, even today.

    "Not my favorite."

    Not my favorite. Seemed to drag at times. It was difficult to stay focused. I found my mind wandering more than usual.
