A tribute to poet, priest, thinker and spiritual guide, the late John O'Donohue, 'in his own words' - featuring vignettes of his writings from people who knew and loved him: His partner Kristine, his brother Pat, his sister Mary, his anam chara Martin Downey, his friends Michael D Higgins and Lelia Doolen and his old bishop Eamonn Casey.
On his role in the Church:
'I always was kind of on the edge of the church when I was fully in it , cos I was always asking the questions ..
And I could never believe blindly.'
On the Church:
The beauty of the Catholic church is that it has a sacramental structure that can hold its own with the best out of any tradition.
It has a mystical system and content that can hold its own with the best out of Tibet...its an amazing tradition but I think you need to be critical.'
On his priesthood:
'The best decision I ever made was to become a priest and the next best decision I made was to leave the formal priesthood.'
On Church leadership:
'We need great prophetic leaders in religion and in spirituality...what we are getting is lacking in vision ..not able to engage with the diversity of the culture.'
'My fear now would be that there will be a return to fundamentalism ..'
