“Even if I could possibly hide myself in a tiny dwelling on a rock, where the waves of the swelling ocean surrounded me on all sides, and shut me in equally from the sight and knowledge of men, not even thus should I consider myself to be free from the snares of a deceptive world: but even there I should fear lest the love of wealth should tempt me and somehow or other snatch me away” (St. Cuthbert, Bede’s Life of St. Cuthbert).
March 20 is the Memorial of St. Cuthbert; Other Feast Day is September 4, The Translation of the Relics of St. Cuthbert (634-687)
