Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

What does it mean to bless others and ourselves? In this collection of O'Donohue's poetic prayers, the author of Beauty and Anam Cara focuses on bringing God's blessings into the liminal spaces in our lives: times of transition, grieving, change or preparation for the unknown. Some of the blessings are for specific situations that are bread-and-butter staples of other prayer books, such as benedictions over births, weddings, new jobs or new homes. Others are unexpected and bravely dark, including a prayer for the loved ones left behind after a suicide, or for a parent after the death of a child. O'Donohue is not afraid to tackle the fear and guilt that many harbor secretly, bringing shame and addiction out into the open even while celebrating new life and new love. His writing is sensitive and deep: As light departs to let the earth be one with night, Silence deepens in the mind, and thoughts grow slow; The basket of twilight brims over with colors, he says of evening Vespers. The book closes with the Irish priest's personal—and often profound—musings on the act of blessing, drawing on Celtic spirituality and the wisdom of poets and philosophers. (Feb. 19)

Review

Praise for John O’Donohue

“John O’Donohue is a man of the soul. His scholarly meditation on the continuing relevance of Ireland’s spiritual heritage has become a publishing phenomenon.…”
London Times

Anam Cara

“A lively spiritual companion to all Celts—or to those who are Celtic in their hearts.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Anam Cara is a radiant source of wisdom, a link between the human and the divine. This work is a blessed, rare gem.”
—Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Be Careful What You Pray For and Healing Words

“This beautifully written book proves that tireless wisdom can bring an amazing understanding about ourselves and the world around us even today.”
—Dannion Brinkley author of Saved by the Light and At Peace in the Light
Eternal Echoes

“O’Donohue has produced a treasury for readers of all faiths. A demanding, high-wire existentialist adventure that will inspire readers to re-evaluate their goals and ways of being in the world. O’Donohue ends each chapter with a lyrical blessing or prayer, and his book itself is a profound, healing prayer.”
Publishers Weekly

John O'Donohue's last work, full of poignancy and poetry. His blessings are taken from lofty and made accessible to all, for many situations and times of need. Lovers of "Anam Cara" will deeply appreciate this, his final gift to us.

While in Ireland on a pilgrimage in Sept. 2013 I became familiar with this beautiful book of blessings. The blessings cover almost all encounters in life. I read from it daily and have ordered a few copies to give as gifts.

I have purchased and given away at least 30 copies of this book. Many different ordinary realities are blessed in O'Donohue's Celtic Christian poetry.

It is like superb wine - easy to take in, but rich in meaning; delicious imagery, satisfying at the deepest level ... Clearly the product of a profoundly observant, caring, creative and inspired creator.

I love the writing ,style and emotion invoked in these lyrical blessings. My father died recently and I found the perfect blessing to read at his funeral. This type of book is a rare and valuable find.

I believe that there is a blessing here for anyone. I have used these blessings with the living and the dying and the bereaved and those in difficult times and the words touch them very deeply.
