Anam chara (or cara) is an Irish language term meaning “soul friend,” widely popularized by John O’Donohue’s 1997 book of the same name, Anam Cara. As the late O’Donohue put it:”The anam cara was a person to whom you could reveal the hidden intimacies of your life. This friendship was an act of recognition and belonging. When you had an anam cara, your friendship cut across all convention and category. You were joined in an ancient and eternal way with the friend of your soul.”

The Irish Travelling Monks
“We knew that the Celts founded the first Europe, but very few are aware that Irish monks had a very important role in Medieval Europe, which they transformed culturally and spiritually. Britain, Scotland, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Slovakia, Russia, Iceland, Greenland, America… are in many ways linked to them.” -Enzo Farinella
