Product Description

Hallowed by the presence of saints and for centuries a haven for pilgrims, Lindisfarne, or Holy Island, off the Northumberland coast, is one of the world's most sacred places. Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors still make their way across the causeway at low tide to experience the extraordinary spiritual energy that inspired Aidan, Cuthbert and other Celtic saints. A Holy Island Prayer Book draws on the island's Celtic heritage to offer new and familiar prayers and readings for morning, midday and evening prayer for a cycle of four weeks. Following the pattern of daily worship in the island's parish church, each day has a special focus, from resurrection and renewal on Sunday, to rest and recreation on Saturday. Also included is an emphasis on the world and its need for peace and healing, making this a versatile resource for worship as well as a personal prayer guide that will help cultivate a simple and natural way of daily prayer.

Publisher's Description

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

Monday: Creation

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.
