‘To Come Home to Yourself’, John O’Donohue’s Blessing

We learned of Irish poet John O’Donohue when reader Mary Kelly sent us his powerful words in response to our post about Human Error Messages. She wrote:

John O’Donohue, who wrote Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom and who celebrated our wildness and crazy strength, often has words that dissolve hardness inside me – I read this yesterday and it made me feel soft and new . . .

The blessing/poem/prayer is called To Come Home to Yourself.  A reminder we can use daily.



Thank you Mary Kelly and for your own very descriptive word: “celebrate our wildness and crazy strength” !

    I love John O’Donohue and always have Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom by my bed. Every page written by this Irish priest resonates for this Jewish New Yorker. He is indeed my soul friend, which is what Anam Cara means.
