The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is often called "the holiest place in England" because of all the saints who have lived there. St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, two popular Celtic saints, are buried there. For more than 1,300 years pilgrims have made their way to this island, which now hosts half a million visitors a year. A Holy Island Prayer Book, with prayers for morning, midday, and night, follows the rhythms and seasons of the natural and Christian year as observed on Holy Island.
More contemplative than the earthy spirituality of communities such as Iona, each day of the week has a special theme:
Sunday: Resurrection and renewal
Tuesday: incarnation and peace
Wednesday: The Holy Spirit in mission and healing
Thursday: Community and unity
Friday: With broken people at the Cross
Saturday: Leisure (morning) and the Saints (night)
A Holy Island Prayer Book includes prayers by popular author David Adam, and is the perfect companion for anyone who has visited Holy Island, or those who are there in spirit.
