Went to their place of resurrection together

Saint Cuthbert of Lindisfarne became a missionary bishop. He was soul friend to a Derwent water hermit named Herbert. They met in Carlisle. Cuthbert intuited his death was getting nearer and prophesied this would be their last meeting. A weeping Herbert begged him to pray that they would go to their ‘place of resurrection’ on the same day. Cuthbert prayed for this, and later returned to the Farne Isle and died there. At the other end of Britain Herbert died on the same day, 20 March 687, so in answer to prayer they went to their place of resurrection together.
