Saint Aidan

Written by Aidan

I felt exited to go to where the person I was named after lived. We went to Sunday morning worship where St. Aidan once preached. Aidan spread the word of God by walking a lot. On a sign it said, "Aidan cultivated peace and love, purity and humility; he was above anger and greed, and despised pride and conceit; he set himself to keep and teach the laws of God, and was diligent in study and prayer. He used his priestly authority to keep the proud and the powerful in check; he tenderly comforted the sick; he relieved and protected the poor." I took a picture by two different Aidan statues, but we can't show the pictures yet because we don't have the right thing. I bought a quill and ink like they used to write the Bible.


  1. Thanks so much for the informaton on St.Aidan... I had not even heard of him before.. Never to old to learn RIGHT??
    Your post was great Aidan... much love margy O.

  2. Great job, Aidan! You are learning so much on your trip with your family. You possess many of the same qualities that St. Aidan possessed. That must have been a special place for you to visit.

    We miss you and continue to pray for you on a daily basis. We look forward to welcoming you back when you join us for Fun Day at Ascension! Until then, enjoy every minute!

    God bless you,
    Mrs. Erickson

  3. I am interested if you were at Holy Island when you saw St Aidan. Such a wonderful community of prayer.
