St. Columba's Spirit

Our friend Ari Adams offers these words of St. Columba as a spiritual corrective to the mindset of the vagante social climber:

Almighty God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
to me the least of saints,
to me allow that I may keep even the smallest door,
the farthest, darkest, coldest door,
the door that is least used, the stiffest door.
If only it be in Thy house, O God,
that I can see Thy glory even afar,
and hear Thy voice,
and know that I am with Thee, O God.

"For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness." -- Psalm 83 (84): 10.
