Columbanus, which means “Little Dove” comes from the Latin name Columba, which was a common name in Ireland during the 5th and 6th centuries.
While Columban came from a different era, he stands
forth as one of the truly great Christians of his day.
His writings and way of life reflect no doubt the culture and monastic tradition of his day. However, he has left us a roadmap to follow. He shows us how
to make a clear and irrevocable decision to follow Christ. Nothing stops him or separates him from following Christ. He does not compromise or water down the Gospel message. He is true to the Word of God and he does not shrink from challenging the pope, bishops and kings to be faithful to their
calling. His focus is on the Kingdom of God and its fulfilment and he sees our life on earth as a pilgrim journey, so we are not to allow ourselves be paralysed by the anxieties and problems of daily life but to look beyond them.
Columban shows us that what binds us together is love, expressed in a deep and
profound care for one another and for God’s creation. There is no life outside the love of God and the love for another and for the natural world, a love that is outward looking and expressed in care for the other.
