Holy Colomban was born in Ireland. He was a kind of giant who had a great reputation by killing a bear of only one punch. But as are often the very strong men, he was soft and humble of heart.
He came to French to be made monk. With the Monastery of Luxeuil, his virtues and the miracles which he operated attracted a big competition of people. When Holy Colomban died, in 615, one saw his heart clearly being detached from his body and going up to the Sky where the chorus of the angels accommodated it.
One calls upon Holy Colomban against the obliteration of the arteries.
Ô God which, by an infinite kindness, intended to us to enjoy not only your divine friendship, but still of the tender and devoted your servant, made affection that it’s for us a reason of more than raise our heart towards you, and to rent you unceasingly all goods of which you fill us. By NR. – S.J. – C. Amen.
Holy Colomban, whose friendship, is so invaluable for God, request for us.
Ô my Jesus! I hold your embraced cross and I shout you with the patriarch: « I will not leave you that you didn’t bless me! » Thus nourish me, Ô Lord! Bread of grace and beverage of the tears, until you wipe my tears in the celestial fatherland, where you are eternally with your Father. Amen.
