BLESSED COLUMBA MARMION, O.S.B.

The Benedictine order has the option of observing the memorial of Blessed Columba Marmion on October 3.

One more miracle through his intercession is necessary for his canonization (listing as “saint”).

Those responsible for his cause for canonization are hoping he will also receive the designation “Doctor of Divine Adoption.”

“God has sent his Son to confer divine adoption on us.” Blessed Columba Marmion wrote at length on that particular facet of our salvation.

Blessed Columba Marmion’s Christ the Life of the Soul deserves to be on every Catholic’s reading list. Click HERE to look into it at Amazon.com’s site.


Prayer
God, our Father,
you called your servant, Columba,
to the monastic life.
You bestowed on him the grace
to understand the mysteries of your Son
and to make him known as the ideal
for all who have been baptized.
Grant that we may learn from his example
to live in Christ by opening our hearts in joy
to the Spirit of your Son, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen.

I recently read his Christ the Life of the Soul. Talk about a spiritual power house of a book. I have been meaning to post a review of it.
