‘Celtic’ is the sexy religious thingy
... because the ‘Celtic’ saints are distant figures in the past who, when they were alive, were rather combative old people but pose no particular threats to us now because they’re in books and so they can be moulded to our own fads by suppressions and misrepresentations. As Christmas approaches and you look for suitable presents along the shelves of ‘Church’ bookshops: a word of advice. Shun the shelves labelled ‘Celtic’.
From Fr Hunwicke.
