There are 14 different design/colours in our range.
Prayer shawls have been around for centuries. Our Irish Blessings prayer shawls are symbolic of the all embracing love of God. When worn we can contemplate His enfolding love wrapped around us as we meditate. They remind us of the warmth of a mother’s hug; they comfort and give solace.
Those who have worn the shawls have felt warmth, comfort and peace. They feel serene, a peaceful calm. The Irish Blessings prayer shawl creates a quiet atmosphere enhancing a warm sense of wellbeing. We enfold each person in the comforting power of prayer from our team here at A Blessed Call to Love.
