From Sacred Space website:
They are not the saints with haloes and floating bodies, but rather those who suffered and survived, who tried and sometimes failed, as Paddy Kavanagh wrote:
To be a poet and not know the trade,
To be a lover and repel all women;
Twin ironies by which great saints are made,
The agonising pincer-jaws of Heaven.
Feast with the saints in your story today!
