St. Aidan, Patron Saint of St. Aidan’s Anglican Church of Payneham.
The following is taken from David Adam’s book Aidan, Bede, Cuthbert, Three Inspirational Saints, (pp56,57, 59) a copy of which is in our Church Library.
Joseph Barber Lightfoot, Bishop of Durham in the times of Queen Victoria, said of Aidan and his lasting influence “Augustine was the apostle of Kent, but Aidan was the apostle of England.” But by far the best epitaph is from Bede, who admired Aidan greatly:
“His life is in marked contrast to the apathy of our own times, for all who walked with him, whether monks or lay-folk, were required to meditate, that is either to read the Scriptures or to learn the Psalms. This was their daily occupation wherever they went…He cultivated peace and love, purity and humility; he was above anger and greed, and despised pride and conceit; he set himself up to keep as well as to teach the love of God, and was diligent in study and in prayer. He used his priestly power to check the proud and powerful; he tenderly comforted the sick; he relieved the poor. To sum up in brief what I have learned from those who knew him, he took pains never to neglect anything he had learned from the writings of the evangelists, apostles and prophets, and he set to carry them out with all his power.”
(Bede, A History of the English Church and People, pp.148.169)
who called Aidan to burn like a bright flame in the Dark Ages,
set our hearts on fire with love for you.
Let our ears be open to the cries of the poor
and our hands in the joy of sharing,
let us walk in the light of your love
and reveal your brightness and glory in our lives:
may it be seen that we love you and walk in your presence.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord who is alive and reigns with you,
O Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
