Celtic Spirituality with John Philip Newell

Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality

One of the most cherished images in the Celtic world is the memory of John the Beloved leaning against Jesus at the Last Supper. It was said of him that he therefore heard the heartbeat of God. He became a symbol of the practice of listening, listening for the beat of the Sacred deep within ourselves, within one another, and within the body of the earth. This is the Christianity that emerged in the Celtic world in the earliest centuries. And it is a stream of Christian wisdom that is flowing again. It moves us to be aware of the Sacred at the heart of every moment and it calls us back into true relationship with the earth, with one another, and with what is deepest in ourselves, all made of God. This is a vision that we need in our lives and world, urgently.
