Lambing season began today...

We got......... Gotland lambs!!! Today two of our first Gotland lambs were born. Beginning Papa Stronsay's lambing season. These two female black beauties, born on the feast of St Magnus, are named Magna and Minor.

The symbolism of Christ the Lamb of God at Easter time is difficult to miss on Papa Stronsay, where the lambing season begins each year at this time. The life of the Redemptorist is foreseen as being a direct imitation of that of the Most Holy Redeemer. Here on the monastery farm, far away from the noise of the world, the veil which separates us from the realities of the world in which Christ Our Saviour lived is often a very thin one.
