PRAYER OF SAINT COLUMBA OF IRELAND

O Lord, grant us that love
which can never die,
which will enkindle our lamps
but not extinguish them,
so that they may shine in us
and bring light to others.
Most dear Saviour,
enkindle our lamps that they may shine
forever in Your temple.
May we receive unquenchable light
from You so that our darkness
will be illuminated
and the darkness of the world
will be made less, amen.
