This guide to the best of holy places of Catholic Britain and Ireland is the ideal pilgrim's companion. David Alton takes us on a personal tour from Celtic sites such as Iona and Lindisfarne to the great houses of recusant families, from holy wells to Marian shrines, and from Croagh Patrick and Knock to the Tower of London. As well as covering many well-known pilgrimage sites, he also gives a suggestion for a 'walk of witness' from Westminster Cathedral to Tyburn Convent in London, taking in some fascinating churches on the way.
Beautifully illustrated in colour and black-and-white, the guide is a blend of history, spiritual inspiration, personal stories and practical information which will enhance any pilgrimage—whether the pilgrim travels alone, with family or perhaps with the parish or diocese. A list of religious houses with telephone numbers is provided which will help pilgrims find suitable accommodation.
Lord Alton served eighteen years in the House of Commons. He is currently Professor of Citizenship at Liverpool John Moores University and an Indipendent life peer. He and his wife Lizzie have four children.
