Prayer to St. Columban

Columban Daily Prayer
November 26, 2023

Oh Blessed Columban, who in your zeal to follow Christ  
left your homeland as a wanderer and spent your life  
in suffering and exile.

Help and protect the missionaries of our day  
who have devoted their lives to preaching the Gospel  
throughout the world.

Obtain for them that same wisdom and fortitude 
by which you overcame the dangers, which beset your path.

Assist and protect us dear St. Columban to live for God’s glory 
that when our pilgrimage is over, we may share with you  
in the joy of our heavenly home, through Christ our Lord.
