This month of June was traditionally a time for weddings; because the ancients believed that their gods and goddesses came together in their ‘grand union’ during the Beltane festival of early May and that it would be disrespectful for couples contemplating matrimony to try to rival the gods. The first full moon of June is known as the ‘Honey’ Moon, as it was thought that this was the best time of the year to collect the honey from the bee hives.

This is a delightful saints book, it is organized by the Celtic seasons of Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine and Lammas (really Lughnasadh) and by day within that season. It is not a "saint a day" kind of book because some days have multiple saints & some have none. The author places each saint in their geographical place & it is amazing how many there are! I will keep this on my shelf, it is a wonderful place to start finding out about these Celtic saints but it isn't an in-depth kind of book, more of a Celtic saint survey, the research on a saint that takes our fancy the author leaves to us.

A guide for those of us from the wide reaches of the Celtic area.

The author notes that if you don't pick up this book in November, then you should not start at the beginning....start where ever you are in the calendar. Her purpose in writing this book is to "help the reader become more aware of times and seasons." (ix) One of the important things about Celtic spirituality (and the reason so many people are embracing it) is that the Celts, unlike others in the "Western" world, saw the goodness of God in all His creation. They lived in the world and they loved it. So Shirley Toulson takes us through the year as the Celts lived it, celebrating their saints from the great three of Columba, Patrick, and Brigit to the more obscure, the great seasonal feasts--holidays--such as Beltain and Samhain, and of course the holy days as well. Well illustrated, containing maps to many of the holy places (of which the Celtic lands have so many), and lots of literary excerpts, poems, and prayers, this is a book to enjoy year after year. Organized by month and season rather than day, as the Celts lived and we should too, this is a book to keep close and consult often.

This also was a Christmas gift from my parents...The book looked like it was a daily devotion for the Celtic year but it's much more on a scholarly plane. I read so many works of the saints that it's odd to look at them on a scholarly plane in the midst of worship. I think I will end up returning this one as well after leafing through the pages a bit more...maybe even trade it for a hagiographical devotion instead.
