Collect One

O God,who didst call thy servant Columba
from among the princes of this land
to be a herald and evangelist of thy kingdom;
Grant that thy Church,
having his faith and courage in remembrance,
may so proclaim the splendour of thy grace,
that people everywhere will come to know thy Son
as their Saviour, and serve him as their King;
who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

as their Saviour, and serve him as their King;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer

Lord Jesus, King of Saints,
you blessed Columba to find refuge in you
both at home and in exile.
May we, who have tasted your goodness at this table,
come with all your saints to the royal banquet
of your kingdom in heaven;
where with the Father and the Holy Spirit
you reign, for ever.
