Columba at Bridei’s fort, by Joseph Ratcliffe Skelton (1865–1927) , in Scotland’s Story, by Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall. From Wikipedia.

Almighty God, by whose providence thy servant Saint Columba proclaimed in the British Isles the truth of thy salvation: We beseech the in all thy mercy to keep us stedfast in this faith, and to order our days in thy holy peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Uplift us, O Lord, by the Holy Spirit to glorify us in thy Saints with a thankful remembrance of Saint Columba, Apostle of Scotland: That we, who have received from our fathers the age-long tradition of faith and piety, may continue firm in our loyalty to thee, and be carried along the heavenly way to the promised home of the blessed, where though livest and reignest with our Saviour and the same Spirit, one God world without end. Amen.
