By Thy God-inspired life thou didst embody
both the mission end the dispersion of the Church,
most glorious Father Colum Cille.
Using thy repentence and voluntary exile,
Christ our God raised thee up as a beacon of the True Faith,
an Apostle to the heathen and an indicator of the Way of salvation.
Wherefore O holy one, cease not to intercede for us that our souls may be saved.
— Troparion of St. Colum Cille (St. Columba), Tone V.
