A Brief Celtic Prayer with a Powerful Message

Many of my ancestors hailed from Northern Ireland for the most part and I have always had a great affinity for the Celtic traditions of spirituality. I tend to think that Celtic Christianity was and still is one of the most natural and profound streams of the faith that can be found. In this light, I wanted to share with you this simple saying from the Celtic tradition. When you boil off all the theological excesses that have latched onto Christianity like ravenous parasites, you can often get back to the beating heart of the Christian heritage. This little piece of spiritual direction does that I think:

Look back and thank God.

Look forward and trust God.

Look around and serve God.

Look within, and find God.

Blessings and have a great day,
