Scratch The SurfaceSCRATCH THE SURFACE, as the title suggests, invites us to go below the outward appearances of things. Being honest is difficult. Maybe it is the hardest thing of all. In this collection of Christian prayers, Donegal Priest Eamonn Kelly tries to open up to Jesus in a more honest way. Drawing from everyday experiences, he expresses fears, hopes, dreams, doubts, joys and anxieties that are often unexpressed. It is hoped that this book will give us courage to be more honest with ourselves, with others and with God. The funding that this book produces will help support the building of a new Church at Glendowan, beside the birthplace of St Columba that great Irish saint.
