Description

This could have put a stop to her writing, only, as she herself observes, Advent is a ‘time of anticipation’, and so it exposes the reader to the themes of ‘salvation and restoration’. It would also be a great book to have out on the coffee table during the Christmas period, for friends and family to dip into. Devices that will support the music files include: Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices. There is also clear guidance on how and when to use the material in imaginative ways, and on the benefits of utilising the imagery and themes of Celtic Christianity.

To be carried by the sung Complines was an especial joy, and their words take on a new significance and meaning from the horizontal position of the sickbed. Celtic Rhythms of Life contains ready-to-use forms of prayer for morning, midday, evening and night, seven days a week.But, as she describes in her introduction, a personal tragedy occurred early on as she was writing it, namely the death of her mother in a car accident in South Africa. But the virgin birth, the manger, the mysterious eastern visitors and their portentous gifts – all these hint at a much grander narrative. Edward C Sellner has recently published a revised and expanded edition of his important work Wisdom of the Celtic Saints, which presents the stories of 27 of the most important of the Celtic saints from Ireland, Scotland, northern England, Wales, Cornwall and Brittany.

Each weekend has a longer meditation centred on canticles from Isaiah, to be absorbed on both Saturday and Sunday – days of anticipation and resurrection. This may seem unfamiliar to the many who are used only to modern language, but it is a deliberate attempt to highlight the contemporary relevance of the treasure of prayer from long ago.The main part of the book consists of thoughts, prayers and readings for the morning and the evening of every day of the year, as well as liturgies for both normal and special occasions. It is a unique resource for personal and group devotions, both for daily use and on special occasions. In them we hear an echo of our own experience of exile, our yearning for authenticity, our desire to embrace truth in whatever unlikely place we find it, and our willingness to live with more questions than answers. We receive many requests for permission to reproduce parts of our liturgy or other items from Celtic Daily Prayer Books 1 and 2.

As well as the Daily Office, there are four original Communion services, along with liturgies and prayers that have emerged out of real-life experiences of seeking God in many differing contexts throughout the world. Thus the Irish not only were conservators of civilisation, but became shapers of the medieval mind, putting their unique stamp on Western civilisation. Ideal for use with Community and home groups, Churches and chaplaincies, looking for fresh resources for their times together.Also available are Braille, Large Print (18 pt) and Giant Print (24pt) versions of the words of the Office and a separate booklet with the words of the Meditations from Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2. Then there are precious graces for for the celebrations of birth, rebirth, marriage, growing older, and bereavement. At Nether Springs, the mother house of the Community, the Office is said or sung at set times in the chapel; when Companions in the Community meet together, saying the Office can be a routine part of the meeting; and individuals and families can use it in their homes as part of daily life. There, in the sacred company of a long line of silent believers, we two become more and find the Christ in our midst.

The Jewish tradition of family Shabbat, adapted with prayers from the Celtic tradition, also finds its place in this book. Discover the origins of Christianity in Ireland and journey with the Irish monks as they embark on their great adventure through France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.In this respect the Community follows the rich tradition of monastic communities through the centuries. A brilliant tool to help us rediscover Advent, to reflect daily, personally, spiritually, and to learn abundantly from a truly inspired and dedicated author. Each day there is also a passage of Scripture to read, and Claire finishes each devotion with a prayer. Although there are a few good modern Christmas songs, lots of the familiar carols carry such beautiful truth filled messages. The Northumbria Community is a diverse, worldwide, Christian Community, committed to a new way for living.
