Columba’s last prayer

by Christine Sine
St Columba

St Columba – Bishop’s House Iona

I just came across this beautiful prayer which was supposedly written by St Columba on his deathbed in the community of Iona (which he founded) in 597. So enriching and a wonderful reminder of the importance of peace and unity. Enjoy!

See that you be at peace among yourselves, my children, and love one another.

Follow the example of good men of old, and God will comfort you and help you,

both in this world and in the world which is to come.
