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.
