The Church in Ireland has produced many wonderful saints through the centuries about whom we may know very little beyond their name or reputation. This may be true even of some of our best known local saints who have made it into the Irish liturgical calendar. Filling that gap is a timely new book, Aglow with the Spirit, by Fr John J O’Riordain, C.Ss.R. Fr O’Riordain is a Redemptorist missioner who is regarded as one of Ireland’s top experts on Celtic spirituality and the early Irish Church and has written extensively on these topics.
Aglow with the Spirit features more than xx saints from throughout Ireland, north Britain and beyond. The book will be an invaluable asset for priests who wish to know more about the saints listed in the Ordo and anyone keen to learn more about the heroes and heroines of the early Irish Church.
