Today is the feast of St. Columba (Columcille), 521-597.
Prayer of St. Columba
Almighty Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Eternal ever-blessed and gracious God.
Allow me the least of saints,
To keep watch at a door in Paradise;
Albeit even the smallest door,
The farthest door, the darkest door, the coldest door
So long as it is in Your house, O God!
Grant that I may, at the door I keep,
See Your Glory and hear Your voice,
Even if it is far off, O God,
And by Your voice know I am with You. Amen.
