Tomorrow's Feast

Tomorrow is my name-day, or onomastico as the Italians would call it — the Feast of St. Columba or Colum Cille, who with St. Patrick and St. Brigid is patron of Ireland and who, having established an outpost on the holy isle of Hy, brought Christianity to the Picts in that wild land known to the Romans as Caledonia.

St. Columba fell asleep in the Lord on the ninth day of June in the year 597.

Sancte Columba, spes Scotorum, ora pro nobis.
