Bl Columba Marmion

I gave a talk to the monks of Prinknash last week, and happened to see a group photograph taken of the dignatories present at an important event early in the Community's Catholic history. Among the throng was the great spiritual writer Abbot Marmion, now Blessed Columba Marmion, and I got a rather poor photo of him on my IPhone.

Nearly all the images of him currently on the web seem to derive from one photograph, so this is of some interest, since it shows him in mitre and cope. I might try to get a better photograph if I find myself in Prinknash again.

  1. I really like this, Dr Shaw: it reminds me of the rather ragged and beaten-up copy of "Christ in his Mysteries" we had at home in Limerick.
