Prayer" email audio greeting card to your friends
There are three saints that are dominate in importance for the Irish. They are St. Patrick, St. Brigid, and St.Columba.
Columba was fascinated by books and their contents and spent much of his time copying valuable manuscripts. According to legend, this practice caused him grief when he copied a borrowed psalter, and the owner of the psalter demanded that Columba give up that copy. The copy's ownership was decided by a king, and the decision went against Columba.
According to another story, further difficulty occurred for Columba when a prince who had fatally injured a rival, took refuge with Columba. A battle ensued, and while Columba's cause was victorious, 3,000 people died. While he felt he had been in the right, his conscience would not rest. He resolved to exile himself to another land and win for Christ as many souls as perished in the battle.
