Fr Columba in Rome

Father Columba McCann OSB was a speaker at a colloquium organised to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Bl. Columba Marmion at Sant’Anselmo in Rome last week.

Fr Columba’s talk was titled ‘A Book of Light, Inspiration and Power:¬†Blessed Columba Marmion and the Bible.’

The event – hosted jointly by the Pontifical Atheneum of Saint Anselm and the Pontifical Irish College – brought together monastics, clergy, academics, diplomats and interested guests to examine Bl. Columba Marmion’s relevance today.

The gathering commenced with a letter of greetings sent by Pope Francis which was read by Cork-born Monsignor Joseph Murphy, Head of Protocol at the Vatican’s Secretariat of State.
