While the Covid-19 pandemic has been a challenging time, it has also offered an opportunity for individuals to open up to an inner world. A time to find out that there is a human need for something beyond the routine of everyday life. During this time, Sr Stan gathered writings from some well-known and some not so well-known people to understand how others bring peace into their lives every day.
“Where and how do you find peace in your daily life?” was the question posed to the contributors including TV presenter Miriam O’Callaghan, rugby player Johnny Sexton, singer Liam O’Maonlai, actor Tommy Tiernan and women’s health advocate Vicky Phelan among many others. Each individual had something different to offer, so the material here is diverse and wide-ranging. What is clear from all the contributions is that peace is about relationships and ultimately it is about love.
The proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Sanctuary, in particular the development of programmes for those who care for the most vulnerable in our society.
