Saint Iwi Biography

Iwi was a Monk in Lindisfarne, England. Deacon. Spiritual student of Saint Cuthbert at Lindisfarne. Following the Irish ideal of an “exile for Christ”, he took ship without bothering to ask its destination, planning to evangelize where it landed.

Afterward, It turned out to be Brittany, where he lived as a hermit and followed a ministry of miraculous healing.250 years later a group of Breton monks carrying the relics of Ivi arrived at Wilton abbey in southwest England. bThe time they were ready to leave they found they could not move the relics; they had found a home at the abbey altar, and the monks were forced to leave them behind.
