    1 thought on “Saint Ciaran: The Tale of a Saint of Ireland”

    1. Beautiful illustrations and an overtly religious/ Sunday School type re-telling of many of the stories associated with Saint Ciaran of Ireland. Good for Catholic parents, educators, homeschoolers.

    2. Summary: This book is about an Irish Saint called Saint Ciaran. It tells of his conception, his life growing up, a little of his journey to Rome, and of his life after he returns back to Ireland. Mainly this book is about the many miracles he is supposed to have done.I thought that this book was ok. It is interesting to me because it has to do with Ireland, but it is very unrealistic and I'm pretty sure that Ciaran is Catholic. Religious Mythology This book is controversial because of its religi [...]

    3. From the author's note: "Of all of green Ireland's saints, Ciaran of Saighir was the first. Born on Cape Clear Island at the very beginning of the sixth century, his first years were spent in prayer and worship to a God whose name he did not know."Although clearly Catholic, this little book expresses without relying on dogma the idea that God exists in all living things.

    4. SORT OF AN OOPSIE . . . 'cause it didn't fill the nonfiction category, after allTells the story of Ciaran's finding of God but having no name by which to call Him, his journey to Rome, his learning in the church, and his return to Ireland and subsequent life.I really enjoyed this book; it is well-written and beautifully illustrated.

    5. The gorgeous illustrations in this book are worth the price of admission all on their own. The story itself is decent enough, though it could have been written in a little more engaging tone. I think I like it better than the kids do, but that may change.

    6. Cool little book. Takes about 10 minutes to read. Gary D. Schmidt is a very versatile author--one of those guys who writes what interests HIM and isn't necessarily concerned with whether it will sell or not. This makes for some pretty cool stuff.

    7. The story was well written, and i had never heard of Saint Ciaran. I did not particularly enjoy the pictures, they were a very realistic painted style. It was short enough for a bedtime story.

    8. We really enjoyed this book, as we do all most all of the suggestions in Catholic Mosaic. The pictures were beautiful and it was so fun to learn more about St. Ciaran.
