Saint Columba of Iona, Enlightener of Scotland - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 5

By your God-inspired life / You embodied both the mission and the dispersion of the Church, / Most glorious Father Columba. / Using your repentance and voluntary exile, / Christ our God raised you 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.
