Peregrinatio propter Christum, over the sea.


All Saints' Day SAMHAIN (or Samhuin), is the Great Feast of the First November the most important of the Celtic calendar, which led to large gatherings of people and complex rituals. The feast of Samain is, etymologically, the "end of summer", the time re-lock the herds in the stables in the Celtic community, which indicates that it was a pastoral community.

Dagda: the triad of Good Father God

Cú Chulainn: The capital collected accidentally when faced with the monstrous Culann hero dog, animal with supernatural powers, able to cope with a hundred warriors at a time ... the eternal struggle of man against his own fears enslaves him.

Maggi tonsure, caracteristic of irelands monks

Ogmios, the Celtic God of Eloquence and Persuasiveness : Lucian of Samosate (c. a.d. 170) speaks of a Celtic Hercules, Ogmios, represented as an old man with white hair carrying a lion-skin, a club, and a bow, and dragging after him a number of worshippers by little chains of gold and amber; the chief chain hung from the god's tongue, symbolising eloquence. Ogmios is a title closely akin to the name of Ogme, who is supposed in Ireland to have been the inventor of oghamic writing. The HerculesOgmios, of whom Lucian or the author he follows may have seen an image among the Allobroges (Dauphiné), was a "civilising hero"; certain texts suggest that a similar character was ascribed to the Celtic Hercules, the founder of Alesia.

Maybe the faithful will never know how the Irish monks saved european civilization, but the ritual of the Celtic Christian church, syncretized, currently continues to serve as a stage for religious services in St Mary Major of Fuente Úrbel (Spain) !!!
