Three Is a Sacred Number – Christine Valters Paintner

April 2, 2019

Abbess Christine’s book of poetry is a true gem ❤️☘️

“Three is a sacred number in the Celtic imagination. Three moves us past duality into a place of integration, much like poetry can. Naming the essential ‘three things’ of one’s life is a common trope in desert and Celtic traditions. There are a wide variety of responses to that question, which to me indicates there isn’t one true answer, but an invitation to consider what is essential in this season of my life now.”
