Today being the feast of St. Finian of Clonard and the anniversary of his birth to heaven, I give you an extract from the hymn to St. Finian given in Sir James Ware's The Antiquities and History of Ireland:
Cujus dogma fuit favo
Praedulcius in populo
Regressus in Clonardiam
Ad Cathedram lecturae
Ad studium Scripturae.
Marcella, as ever, outdoes us in her tributes to our heavenly patron.
St. Finian of Clonard, pray for us!
