A Song For Ireland’s Own

January seems to be the month for self-help and spiritual books in my local Easons bookshop. After the Christmas holidays each year the front display shelves are filled with them. I guess the shop knows to prepare for the New Year’s Resolutions brigade. Many people go in search of books to motivate themselves after they make rash resolutions to improve their lives then must try to follow through with them.

So Ireland’s Own timed it well when they printed my article last week about The Priests’ recent book, Soul Song . The book is a combination of the singing trio’s reflections on their ‘unexpected journey’ since they became popular classical/sacred singers and their spiritual and practical advice, acquired during more than twenty years pastoral experience. When I read the book I enjoyed the glimpse into these ministers’ lives and the book’s homespun truths made me pause to think about life and how I wish to live it.
