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 prayers 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.
