On November 23, 2015, Columban Missionaries will celebrate St. Columban’s Day and many Christian communities right across Europe will remember the 1,400th anniversary of his death.
Prayer of Saint Columban
Lord, kindle our lamps, Saviour most dear to us,
that we may always shine in your presence
and always receive light from you, the Light Perpetual,
so that our own personal darkness may be overcome,
and the world’s darkness driven from us.
(St. Columban, Sermon XII)
