Easter

 

Holy Island's two retreat houses and the churches have a more or less integrated programme for Holy Week. Northern Cross pilgrims walked through snow before arriving on Good Friday.
 
Oyvind and Jens from Denmark made a film of his prayer workshops.  Sven, leader of our Community in Norway sent this poem with his Easter greetings: 
 
 the snow came
as flocks
of white birds
 
settling upon the earth
incubating it
 
every day now
new birds
are leaving
 
soon no one
will be back
only
 a newly
hatched
spring.
Tonight all pilgrims will circle a fire on St. Cuthbert's beach, and return to the church to celebrate the resurrection.
Rejoice, earth!
Darkness vanishes!
Glory fills you!
We rise to unimagined heights!
