There’s an old Irish proverb: “It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.” In this book, much-loved poet, storyteller, theologian, and speaker Pádraig Ó Tuama applies ideas of shelter and welcome to journeys of life, using poetry, story, biblical reflection, and prose to open up gentle ways of living well in a troubled world.

Interweaving everyday stories with analysis, gospel reflections with mindfulness and Celtic spirituality with poetry, In the Shelter explores the practice of welcoming as a spiritual discipline. In particular, Ó Tuama tells careful stories of welcoming parts of life that are often unwelcome.
