“When [Owen] had sufficiently recovered his strength he vowed to remain as a religious on Saint's Island for the rest of his life. So on an evening they brought him to the stone causeway leading over the water. As he passed this narrow bridge a sudden remembrance fell upon him of all he had suffered in his vision and of the troubled waters he had seen at his feet. For a moment horror had bowed him down, and he would have fallen if the Prior had not held him from behind. But once his feet had touched Saint's Island the bright joy of his dream re-echoed in his heart. Once more he seemed to move across the scented meadows into the presence of the King, who abideth in His tabernacle for ever surrounded by the witness of the dead and the praise of the living.”
