In Footprints Of The Noerthern Saints, Cardinal Basil Hume invites us to journey with him in the footsteps of the early saints of Northumbria, saints such as Paulinus, Aidan, Hilda and Cuthbert. With enthusiasm and simplicity, he tells the stories of these holy men and women under whose shadow he feels he has lived all his life. He shares why they mean so much to him and reflects on their message for us today. What, for example, does Paulinus say to us about the need for community in our lives? What can we learn from Aidan's simplicity and single -mindedness? Or from Cuthbert's love of solitude and silence?
