Today, I begin my pilgrimage to holy places in Scotland with Morag Liebert, RCWP. Our first destination is the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
My spiritual focus for this pilgrimage is:
Embrace the stillness and silence;
Celebrate the beauty of creation;
Take the pain of others' sufferings into my heart in loving solidarity;
Experience the mystical oneness of all in boundless love;
Experience the spiritual energy of Divine Presence at work everywhere: healing,
empowering and transforming our world into a more just, equal place.
The Holy Island of Lindisfarne
The Holy Island lies just off the extreme Northeast corner of England with a population of just over 160 persons. Over 650,000 visitors come to the Holy Island every year.
Holy Island is a place of uniqueness: It is internationally famous both for its medieval religious heritage and also its more recent picturesque 16th century castle. Many visitors are attracted by the peace and tranquility which pervades the island.
