“Saints & Holy Souls” is the fifth book in the series “Watermead Pathways”: a collection of reflections and memories from Fr John Daley, spiritual guide and founder of the Watermead Apostolate. Each year the Catholic Church celebrates 'The Feast of All Saints' on the 1st November and on 2nd November remembers our 'Holy Souls'. This latest book from Fr John reflects on those he has loved and some of the people he has known in the homes, parishes, schools and countries where he has served as priest. He reflects on Church teaching and understanding of heaven, purgatory and hell. The book concludes with the music and words of one of our Watermead hymns, 'Going Home', the lyrics also penned by Fr John.
