Lord MacLeod, founder of the monastic Iona Community on an island off the west coast of Scotland, spent his life reviving a prayer-centered spiritual movement.

Applying a simple monastic rule of prayer-centered life to its daily routine, the community became one of the most innovative and progressive spiritual movements in the Christian Church. This ecumenical community’s work continues, encouraging peace in the world and helping ordinary men and women with their personal struggles.
