OVERVIEW This is the first book in the series 'Watermead Pathways' - a collection of reflections and memories from childhood to priesthood from Fr John Daley.
EUCHARIST (“Thanksgiving”) is the central theme of this first book and Fr John shares with us his reflection on the wonder of God’s gift of love in the sacrament (“The Real Presence”) and some of the journey that brought him to that understanding. We trace his path as a happy six-year-old penitent trying to come to terms with the God of love given to him at home, puzzled by the God of venial and mortal sins given him at school, and then through years of priesthood, remembering homes, parishes, schools and countries where he has served as priest.

- WATERMEAD STORY : Background to 'Watermead Pathways'. Over the years there has been constant requests from people to ask Fr John to put in writing some of the stories and thoughts he has shared over the years during homilies and at retreats. This request has been fulfilled indirectly when Fr John has been asked to write for the Catholic press and local Church magazines, and, in the typing up of these various articles, a database of his writings had been available for a some time - they just needed putting together in book form. In 2010, after much persuasion, he allowed us to make a start on a collation of his writings. The books are illustrated by people who have contributed their artwork over the years. 'FAITHGIFT' is the first book in the 'Watermead Pathways' series.
