O Blessed St. Columban,
who in your zeal to follow Christ, left your homeland
and spent your life in suffering and exile.
Help and protect, we humbly ask you, the missionaries of our day
who have devoted their lives to preaching the Gospel throughout the world.
Obtain for them, we ask you, that same wisdom and fortitude
by which you overcame the dangers which beset your path,
and that firm faith and ardent love which enabled you
to endure gladly the privations of the life for the love of Christ.
Assist and protect us also dear St. Columban,
so to live for God’s glory
that when our pilgrimage through life is over
we may share with you in the joy of our heavenly home
through Christ our Lord.
