Icon of St. Cormac Ua-Liathan
("Of the Sea").
Adamnan of Iona describes this Scottish Saint as having attempted
thrice to find a wilderness in the midst of the ocean. Not finding one,
he travelled extensively throughout the Orkneys and Shetlands, perhaps
the Faroes, and "beyond the limits of human wanderings," as St. Adamnan
wrote. As prophesied by St. Columba, St. Cormac returned to Ireland and
became abbot of the monastery at Durrow, where he was laid to rest.
Holy Father Cormac, pray to God for us!
