Sister Benedicta bases this essay upon the life of one of the Celtic saints who first lived the Christian faith in the British isles, namely Cuthbert of Lindisfarne (634-87 AD). Using two early biographical writings, she explores the meaning of ‘spirituality’ in the life of Cuthbert with reference to the gospel. We are given a picture of the compelling and enduring power of love and holiness.
