BEGIN WITH THE HEART Encompassing An Astonishing Secret

If you believe that we are made in the image of God and that this needs to inform how we think about God and Creation – then you may find this website of interest.

It combines the reflections and resource material from djoleary.com and the online video course based on the book “An Astonishing Secret”.

This website offers thoughts and reflections from Fr Daniel O’Leary (Deceased) who has written many books about creation and our role in it.

Beyond catechism, doctrines and routine external religion, the reflections and video course emphasise, with Pope Francis, the lived daily experience of an intimate, all embracing, incarnate love.

Please Note:

We are in the process of merging the Astonishing Secret website and the Begin with the Heart website. This process should be complete by the end of September 2022. Until then you may find that you cannot find everything you expect. Please bear with us as we make the necessary changes.

Access to the Astonishing Secret Video Course is now free of charge. Money received previously has been donated to CAFOD via their Candlelight Fund for Daniel. If you would like to make a donation to CAFOD please click on the Candlelight Fund link.
