We thought it might be helpful to have some reflections on various characters who have informed the Community’s journey, as we travel through the year. Many of these may also be found in Celtic Daily Prayer. Some others have also been included who have been influential in the Celtic lands, and some significant festivals are also included. We’ll post articles here on this page, according to whose ‘day’ is coming up, and each article will appear for 1 week prior to and 1 week following that day. At the end of each article we have provided a prayer which you may find helpful as you meditate on the saint’s life. You can also use the table below to explore who else is in the list.
