Benedictus

A Book Of Blessings




An inspiring and comforting new work from the author of the international bestseller, ANAM CARA

'We have fallen out of belonging
consequently, when we stand before crucial thresholds in our lives, we have no rituals to protect, encourage and guide us as we cross over into the unknown. For such crossings, we need to find new words. What is nearest to the heart is often farthest from the word. This book is an attempt to reach into that tenuous territory of change that we must cross...'
In sharing words of profound grace and wisdom, master storyteller John O'Donohue's BENEDICTUS offers blessings to shelter us as we confront the many challenges we face on our journey through life.
Living in an anxious world - a world so often dominated by unwelcome change, unhappiness and even despair – many readers will find comfort in John O'Donohue's illuminating introductions, covering areas such as Beginnings, Desires, States of the Heart, Callings and Beyond Endings, and the blessings themselves provide an inspiring and reassuring new vision of possibility. It is also a vision of hope and belonging for this sometimes troubled world.
