St. Columban of Mt. Leinster, Bangor, Luxeuil, Bregenz and Bobbio,
your name rings out across the world.
Come to our aid and rise up to help us in our need.
As pilgrims on the journey, we ask you to keep us safe
from the coronavirus that knows no borders.
Heal those who suffer; protect those who are exposed and vulnerable;
enlighten all who respond; guide those who govern;
calm our fears; give us a new vision of Life;
and intercede for us before God the Most High
to stop the spread of this virus that we may continue
to work together for a new civilization of love for all.
— By a Columban Missionary
