In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, here are 2 excerpts from

my Celtic Prayer Journal.


It is a difficult lesson to learn today,

to leave one’s friends and family and deliberately

practice the art of solitude

for an hour or a day or a week.

For me, the break is most difficult…


And yet, once it is done, I find there is quality

to being alone that is incredibly precious.


Life rushes back into the void,


more vivid,

fuller than before!

(Anne Morrow Lindbergh)


There is a contemplative in all of us,

almost strangled but still alive,

who craves quiet enjoyment of the Now,

and longs to touch

the seamless garment of silence


makes whole.

(Alan P. Tory)


Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
       I will be exalted among the nations,
       I will be exalted in the earth.”
