St. Cuthbert of Lindisfarne, Wonder-worker of Britain (+687)

Commemorated March 20

The son (born c. 634) of Anglo-Saxon Christian parents living in the north of England, Cuthbert experienced a miraculous occurrence while still a youth which determined the direction of his life. He was tending sheep in the hills when he witnessed the soul of St. Aidan, abbot of the monastery of Lindisfarne, being carried to heaven by the angels at his death in 651 in nearby Bamburgh. Cuthbert was so moved by this experience that he entered the monastery at Lindisfarne himself and began his life of prayer. He helped found and lead several other monasteries and was involved in missionary activity at a time when many local people were still pagan. Cuthbert was eventually appointed prior at Lindisfarne but, like many monks before and after him, his desire for the solitary life became stronger and stronger. In 676, he relinquished his position as prior and withdrew to Inner Farne, an almost deserted area where he could live as a hermit. But – as has also been true for other holy men and women – many people sought him out for spiritual guidance. Archbishop Theodore (the Greek Archbishop of Canterbury) appointed him bishop, and Cuthbert left the solitary life to devote himself to service to the people of his diocese. He was beloved by all for his teaching, preaching, and gift of healing. Cuthbert died, surrounded by his monks, on March 20, 687, and was buried at Lindisfarne. When, eleven years later, his casket was opened so that the bones could be placed in a more elaborate shrine, the monks found not bones, but an incorrupt body, which looked just as it had on the day of his death.

    Holy Cuthbert, Hear our Prayers!

    I was absolutely thrilled to find an icon of a Celtic Saint here at Uncut Mountian Supply - Saint Cuthbert. My icon arrived on Holy Saturday, and I placed it in my 'Easter Basket' and took it to the temple for the Vigil of the Resurrection. My priest said to me, knowing I desire to on the name Cuthbert when I fully enter the Church, 'was that your basket I saw with Saint Cuthbert when I was blessing the baskets?' He went on to say, 'what a fantastic icon' and I agreed - he then took the icon away to be blessed and I hope he'll be returned to adorn my icon corner. Saint Cuthbert is venerated in the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox expressions.

    This was my first purchase from Uncut Mountain Supply and I was extremely pleased! I ordered three small icons to use as book marks, and I'm very happy with how they look. I thought the communication about my order and the delivery of the product were excellent. And thanks very much for including the complimentary icon with my order - that was very nice! Best wishes to you all for a blessed 2021.

    St. Cuthbert icon

    Posted by Fr. Matthew homes on 11th Jun 2020

    The icon is of fantastic quality, looks really great. My only qualm is that I bought the x large 11x17 But the icon is not anywhere close to that. I understand that icon sizes are not exact but I would assume that at least of the measurements would match. For example it may be 11 wide but not 17 tall. But the icon was significantly smaller on both dimensions.
