Vocavit Columbam de Foraminibus Petre

St Columba window, St. Margaret’s Chapel, Edinburgh Castle.

Jesus, wishing to relieve sighing in favour of
a song, called forth Columba from the
holes of the rock, from the hollows of timber.
This dove returned to the ark,
bearing, moreover, the sign of God’s mercy
in his mouth.
