In sharing words of profound grace and wisdom, master storyteller John O'Donohue - author of the international bestseller Anam Cara - offers in Benedictus blessings to shelter us as we confront the many challenges we face on our journey through life.
We are living in an anxious world - a world so often dominated by unwelcome change, unhappiness, uncertainty and even despair. Now, more than ever, we need this collection of blessings and thoughts, covering areas such as Beginnings, Desires, States of the Heart, Callings and Beyond Endings - it is a vision of hope and belonging for this sometimes troubled world.
There are blessings in this book - for birthdays, anniversaries, deaths and many more. Some are long, some are short but all touch the heart.
