Finding Peace (Compiled by Sister Stan)
While the Coronavirus 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 and materialism of everyday life. Quite simply, people need some kind of spiritual sustenance. During this time, Sr Stanislaus Kennedy gathered writings from 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, ex-rugby player Johnny Sexton, 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. All the contributions are a testament to an inner life that needs to be sustained, especially in times of crisis.
