Blessed Columba Marmion, abbot


Optional Memorial


From the Common of Holy Men and Women:  For an Abbot





God, the Father Almighty,

who called Blessed Columba Marmion

to the monastic way of life,

and opened to him the secrets of  Christís  mysteries;

look with favour on us who serve you,

and graciously grant, through  his intercession,

that, strengthened by the Spirit of adoption to sonship

we may merit to become

a worthy dwelling place for your wisdom.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
