To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

To Bless the Space between Us To Bless the Space between Us Knopf Doubleday

John O'Donohue
Knopf Doubleday, 2008

O'Donohue's final book is a collection of Celtic blessings.  Written just before his unexpected death, it is as if he blessed us before he departed. The late Celtic Irish poet and theologian offers these often profound blessings for every occasion and moment which are beautifully arranged to follow the life cycle. It is a wonderful resource for pastoral care and personal devotion.

"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....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." -Publishers Weekly
