Laochra an Chreidimh II – Patrons
Saint Columba (c. 521-597). Also known as Colm, Colum, and Colmcille, he was probably born at Gartan, Donegal, the son of Fedhlimidh (or Phelim) and Eithne, both of royal descent. He was baptized one of the names listed above and educated at Moville, where he became a deacon. He then studied at Leinster and continued his studies at Clonard, where he was probably ordained, and then went to Glasnevin under St. Mobhi. When plague caused Glasnevin to be disbanded in 543, he returned to Ulster and spent the next decade and a half preaching and founding monasteries all over Ireland, among them Derry, Durrow and Kells. He became involved in a dispute with St. Finnian when he copied the first copy of St. Jerome’s psalter (owned by Finnian) to reach Ireland, and Finnian claimed his copy; King Diarmaid ruled Columba’s copy must go to Finnian. Columba again crossed swords with Diarmaid, this time literally, when Curnan of Connaught, a kinsman who sought sanctuary with Columba, was murdered by Diarmaid’s men and Columba’s clan, some three thousand men were killed at the Battle of Cuil Dremne. A synod at Telltown held Columba responsible and censured him. In remorse, Columba decided to leave Ireland and do penance for the deaths by converting a like number of pagans. In 563, with twelve relatives, he went to Iona off the coast of Scotland and built 0n that island a monastery that grew into the greatest monastery in Christendom. He devoted himself to evangelizing the Picts of Scotland, converted King Brude at Inverness, and in time evangelized all of Pictland. He attended the Synod of Drumceat in Meath, in 575, where he successfully fought to exempt women from military service, visited Ireland again in 585, and is believed responsible for the Battle of Cuil Feda near Clonard in 587. In the meanwhile, Iona had become famous all over Europe, and his holiness, austerity, and reputation for miracles attracted all manner of visitors to the monastery, where he died on June 9. Columba’s influence on Western Christianity was enormous. Monks from Iona went all over Europe, and the monastic rule he developed was practiced widely on the Continent until the Rule of St. Benedict became almost universal. Columba’s practices dominated the churches of Scotland, Ireland and Northumbria though, in time, the Celtic practices he introduced came into conflict with the Roman practices, which eventually supplanted them. His feast day is June 9th.
