The Centre for Celtic Spirituality

Pilgrimage to Ireland

 

God be with thee in every pass,

Jesus be with thee on every hill,

Spirit be with thee on every stream

Headland and ridge and lawn;

Each sea and land, each moor and meadow,

Each lying down, each rising up,

In the trough of the waves, on the crest of the billows,

Each step of the journey thou goest.

- Carmina Gadelica

Pilgrimage and Faith

The Celtic Christians believed that Christ walks with us on pilgrimage journeys, and that Christ is present also in those whom we encounter along the way. They also believed in ‘thin places,’ where there is but a thin veil between heaven and earth.  As you journey in Ireland, may you be inspired by the ancient gifts of Celtic Spirituality and the modern witness of those doing the work of Peace and Reconciliation today. May you take a step outside your world and return refreshed and renewed, inspired to live your faith in a new and powerful way.

Bless to me, O God,

The earth beneath my foot.

Bless to me, O God,

The path whereon I go.

I on Thy path, O God,

Thou O God, in my steps.
