More About the ‘Thin Place’

This Gaelic term has meaning for all. Season 4, Episode 8
June 22nd, 2023

In this week’s episode, counselor Kathryn Clarke expands on her discussion of last week on the Gaelic term, ‘Caol Áit’, the “thin place between heaven and earth,” as it is seen in the Catholic faith. “As Catholics, we believe in the presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We believe that each host in each tabernacle holds the divine reality of Jesus Christ – this is our ultimate ‘thin place.’” She notes one need not be Catholic to experience this – it’s available to all.

Kathryn Clarke is a widely-respected public speaker on the spiritual life and the author of The Breakable Vow (Harpercollins 2004), The Map (Backpack Productions LLC), and The Backpack Program (Backpack Productions LLC). She is married, the mother of six children, and lives in Ireland.
