Rediscovering Saint Patrick
The Spiritual Journey of Saint Patrick (Messenger Publications) » by Aidan J. Larkin SSC opens up new perspectives on the patron saint of Ireland, particularly regarding his spirituality and inner life. The author also builds on the work of Columban priests before him in presenting a complete re-evaluation of Patrick as a true Father of the Irish Church.
Referring to Patrick’s spiritual legacy, Larkin writes:
“Patrick gradually lets himself be led more and more by the Holy Spirit, who is ‘the gift of God’, ‘the power from on high’ whose presence he has experienced with special intimacy in prayer and dynamic action in his daily life.”
