"St. Cuthbert (634-687) was an Anglo-Saxon who was educated at the Celtic monastery of Melrose, one of the many Anglo-Saxon saints who had a Celtic education and who sought to reconcile both peoples in the peace of Christ. He was consecrated bishop of Lindisfarne rather against his natural inclination to live a hermetic existence on the Inner Farne Island. His dying words are a testament of peace: 'Always preserve divine charity among yourselves, and when you come together to discuss your common affairs, let your principle goal be to reach a unanimous decision.' "
