In The Spiritual Journey of Saint Patrick Aidan Larkin SSC, building on the work of Columban priests before him, opens up new perspectives and presents a complete re-evaluation of Patrick as a true Father of the Irish Church.  Here indeed is a compelling argument for a reevaluation and recognition of Patrick’s profound spiritual legacy.

At a launch for The Spiritual Journey of Saint Patrick in  Dalgan Park, Co Meath,  special guest  Archbishop Eamon Martin said that ‘not only is he a saint for the whole church, I think Fr Aidan’s work reminds me that St Patrick is a saint for our times.’
