Saint Magnus Erlendsson was a Scottish Viking convert known for his piety and gentleness. The rule of the Island of Orkney was divided between St. Magnus and his cousin Haakon, that ended in enmity and the death of Magnus. As Magnus was struck by an ax deathblow, he forgave his cousin. A field of wildflowers grew where he lay and a “holy light and heavenly fragrance” came over his tomb where many are healed by visiting his grave.
