Anam Cara, The Friend of the Soul
"Anam cara" (Ananchara) is a Gaelic word that translates as "soul" friend. Anam cara is a partner of your soul, an equal who discuss problems and share advice with you. The ancient Celts often practiced the ritual of Anam Cara to formalize friendships in the same way that marriage rituals
formalize the bond between lovers.
Celtic Friendship's Prayer
In the eye of the Father who created me,
In the eye of the Son who purchased me,
In the eye of the Spirit who cleansed me,
In friendship and affection.
Through Thine own Anointed One, O God,
Bestow upon us fullness in our need,
Love towards God,
The affection of God,
The smile of God,
The wisdom of God.
The grace of God,
The fear of God,
And the will of God
To do on the world of the Three,
As angels and saints
Do in heaven;
Each shade and light,
Each day and night,
Each time in kindness,
Give Thou us Thy Spirit.
