Oliver Davies is well known in Great Britain and Europe as a scholar of Celtic Christianity. He is the author of Celtic Spirituality in the prestigious series Classics of Western Spirituality from Paulist Press. Here Fr. Gabriel reviews his book Celtic Christianity in Early Medieval Wales. Listeners will not find this an esoteric offering at all, but rather a heartwarming regional appropriation of Orthodox Christianity.
"Thanks for all the great work. I am part of a small but growing number of Orthodox Christians in the Republic of Ireland. I live in County Kerry in the southwest part of the country, and we have just started a small mission parish in Tralee. Nationally, we are up from 11,000 Orthodox "self identifiers" in the 2006 census to 49,000 in the 2012 census. I love all the programs you broadcast and use the podcasts on my mobile for my long drive to work and back. I do hope that you continue the good work. As we say here in Ireland, "God Bless the Work.""
