Séamus Devitt writes:

Each reflection is spread over two pages, and each is an invitation to treasure, and to ponder in the heart, the person of Christ and his teachings. Each is an invitation into the Presence.

‘An Enchanted Castle’:  A famous Lutheran Philosopher, Kierkegaard,  said that the terms and language we use in our Christian faith communities are like an enchanted castle where the most  beautiful princes and princesses rest in a deep sleep – they need only to be awakened, brought to life, in order to stand in their full glory. This book  is about visiting that ‘enchanted castle’ of our faith-words, taking off the covers, dusting the treasures, holding them up to the light, and looking at them – with the heart – and becoming radiant, again. This book is about making a song and dance around these wonders of our Christian faith, gazing at them again with an Easter joy.

” ‘Time with the Master’ – Reflections on the Life of Jesus, a most interesting and useful resource to have.”  (+Fintan Monahan, Bishop of Killaloe).
