St. Cuthberts Way


The need of the leading of the Holy Spirit has been on my heart

Snip20170911_15

Listen to this song and it makes me think of the Holy Spirit, and his influence on all of creation.

ST AIDAN’S PRAYER FOR THE HOLY ISLAND OF LINDISFARNE
Lord, this bare island,
make it a place of peace.
Here be the peace
of those who do Thy will.
Here be the peace
of brother serving man.
Here be the peace
of holy monks obeying.
Here be the peace
of praise by dark and day.
Be this Island Thy Holy Island.
I, Lord, Thy servant, Aidan,
make this prayer.
Be it Thy care.
Amen.
(from the Daily Office of the Northumbria Community)

The Lorica of St. Brendan

https://archive.org/details/LoricaBrendan

From the Acts of St. Brendan of Clonfert (best known for his voyages), a very long and thorough lorica (breastplate) prayer. It is similar to other better-known loricas like the Lorica of St. Patrick, but a lot longer!

Christianity spread so rapidly across Northern Europe in part because Christian missionaries were able to travel on roads the pagan Romans built!

  4. Aidan and the Lindisfarne gospels
  5. Aidan and Sutton Hoo
  6. Aidan and Lindisfarne
  7. Aidan and his prayer of dedication

Development

The story

‘Here! She’s all yours! What do you think?’ King Oswin’s face lit up as he was talking. ‘She’s three years old, can do 30 miles in a day without stopping, and her father’s one of my best. She’s all yours. What do you think, Aidan?’

Aidan didn’t know what to think. To hide his confusion, the monk walked over to inspect his present. The horse was a magnificent chestnut mare with a bushy blond mane, 15 hands high, the colour of gingerbread. He stared into the large dark eyes and stroked her forehead. The horse neighed in appreciation. Yes, she was a beautiful creature.

‘I… I’m amazed, my lord.’ He turned to face the king. ‘I don’t deserve it. She’s… she’s wonderful.’

‘She’s yours. I thought you’d make good use of her on your travels. I hear you’ve been all over my kingdom in the last year, and it’s always on foot. I know you see it as your duty to visit every little village, and I’m glad you’re doing it, but you’re putting yourself in danger.’

‘That goes with the territory, my lord. God called me to be a messenger to your people, so I have to go there.’

‘But you don’t need to do it on foot. A man of your learning and leadership needs to go places quickly. You need to be safe from bandits – and you’re not getting any younger, either. I know you like the simple life, but there must be limits. You need a horse and you need a saddle to help you ride it. Would you accept them as a gift, from one friend to another?’

Aidan sighed, smiled, then nodded. The king had given him so much help already. It would be the height of bad manners to refuse the horse – and Aidan knew that Oswin had enemies. They would love to hear it if the royal generosity was insulted by a mere priest.

The Prayer of St. Columba
Be a bright flame before me, O God

a guiding star above me.

Be a smooth path below me,

a kindly shepherd behind me

today, tonight, and for ever.

Alone with none but you, my God

I journey on my way;

what need I fear when you are near,

O Lord of night and day?

More secure am I within your hand

than if a multitude did round me stand.

Amen.

St. Columba was born on December 7, ca. 521 A.D. to Fedhlimidh and Eithne of the Ui Neill clan in Gartan (Donegal). As a young man, Columba soon took an interest in the church, joined the monastery at Moville, and was ordained a deacon by St. Finnian. After studying with a bard called Gemman, Columba was ordained a priest by Etchen, the bishop of Clonfad. Columba entered the monastery of Mobhi Clarainech, and when disease forced the disbanding of that monastery, Columba went north and founded the church of Derry. Tradition has it that after founding several other monasteries, Columba copied St. Finnian’s psalter without the permission of Finnian, and thus devalued the book. When Finnian took the matter to High King Dermott for judgement, Dermott judged in favor of Finnian, stating “to every cow its calf; to every book its copy” (I am borrowing this quote from Cathach Books in Dublin). Columba refused to hand over the copy, and Dermott forced the issue militarily. Columba’s family and clan defeated Dermott at the battle of Cooldrevny in 561. Tradition further holds that St. Molaisi of Devenish, Columba’s spiritual father, ordered Columba to bring the same number of souls to Christ that he had caused to die as pennance. In 563, Columba landed on Iona with 12 disciples, and founded a new monastery. After founding several more monasteries, confounding the local druids, and participating in another battle (this time against St. Comgall over who owned the church of Colethem), Columba died on June 9, 597.
