Shrine of Saint Aidan of Lindisfarne

Lindisfarne is one of England’s islands.  It is also referred to as the Holy Island.  St. Aidan’s monastery was the root of Christian teaching in England during the seventh century.  The ruins of Saint Aidan’s monastery remain a tourist attraction today.  Christians from all over the world make pilgrimages to Linisfarne to visit the priory.  Many Christians wear Saint Aidan of Lindisfarne jewelry in honor of the saint who brought Christianity back to England.

 Many Christians give a Saint Aidan charm, Saint Aidan medal, or Saint Aidan pendant to firefighters to help protect them from harm.  The Saint Aidan of Lindisfarne necklace is a favorite because it depicts the patron saint of firefighters holding a flaming torch with the Christian cross in behind him.  Firefighters wear the St. Aidan medal as protection against the dangers of firefighting.
